Ashley Judd's Run for Senate Seen as Likely

Increasing signs she'll challenge Mitch McConnell in Kentucky


All signs are pointing to an Ashley Judd Senate campaign in Kentucky.

The actress is planning to launch a Democratic challenge to Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in early May, when the annual Kentucky Derby puts the state in the national spotlight, according to the Huffington Post.

News of the expected timeline comes after Judd has met with Democratic leaders both in Kentucky and in Washington, D.C., and after a flurry of local news reports have painted her as increasingly likely to run.
