Ashley Judd Not Running for Senate




Actress Ashley Judd has announced she will not run for the Senate in Kentucky, in a would-be face-off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014. Many Democrats see McConnell as vulnerable, just needing a tough challenger in order to knock him off. Even though polls have shown a close race, Ashley Judd will not be running, as she announced on Twitter. According to the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman, she was ninety-five percent in, but recently had began going back and forth. Eventually, she had decided not to. According to CNN contributor Hillary Rosen, who counts Ashley Judd as a client, she has known for a few days that she would not be running. This would most likely explain the media reports that Bill Clinton was trying to convince Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to run for the seat.
