Ashley Judd Still Considering Senate Run: "The People of Kentucky Need a Fighter"

Ashley Judd is still seriously considering a potential run for the Kentucky Senate, Politico reports. "I am incredibly honored and frankly overwhelmed by the outpouring of support — that the people of Kentucky are interested in having me represent them is the greatest honor of my life so far, and I am certainly taking a close look at it," Judd said at The Kentucky Society of Washington's Bluegrass Ball in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. President Obama's Inauguration: "Our Journey Is Not Complete" "The people of Kentucky need a fighter and certainly going back 10 generations, I've got some fighters from those hills in my family and as soon as I know anything — after I've told the family members to whom I've made my promises that they'll be the first to know — you will be up to date in real time," Judd continued. The actress is reportedly considering a 2014 campaign against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), but Judd revealed that "there's not a timeframe" for her possible run. Democratic attendees at the ball were in full support of Judd attempting to unseat McConnell, who's currently on his fifth term. "I think 2014 will be anybody's game in terms of the Senate race. I know that Ashley apparently is thinking about it. I think she's a great Kentuckian," Gov. Steve Beshear (D-Ky.) said. "I think she certainly has a possibility of winning." Oops! Bill Clinton photobombs Kelly Clarkson at Obama's inauguration A few Republican politicians, on the other hand, took the opportunity to share their doubts. "I really don't know what her background is other than being a movie star," Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said. Do you think Judd would make a good senator?
