Rand Paul: Ashley Judd "Too Damn Liberal" for Senate

Thinks she'll have a hard time running in Kentucky with her opinions about coal power


Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Wednesday reacted to a possible Senate run by Ashley Judd by saying that the actress was so "damn liberal" that she did not even belong in the United States.

Earlier this week, Politico reported that Judd "is seriously exploring" a bid against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in 2014 or possibly waiting until 2016 to take on Paul.

Conservative WMAL radio hosts Brian Wilson and Larry O'Connor asked Paul to react to the news on Wednesday.

"I heard she lives in Scotland, I thought she was running for Parliament," Paul quipped to the radio hosts delight. "I think she'd fit right in, in the English Parliament."
