Ashley Judd Seriously Looking at Senate Bid

Hollywood movie star Ashley Judd (D) is seriously exploring a 2014 run for the Senate to take on Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Politico reports.

"In recent weeks, Judd has spoken with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) about the possibility of a run, has discussed a potential bid with a Democratic pollster and has begun to conduct opposition research on herself to see where she's most vulnerable in the Bluegrass State, sources say."

"Whether Judd jumps into the race remains far from certain. She's reportedly also weighing whether to wait until 2016 to instead take on freshman Sen. Rand Paul, sources say."

The Week has a roundup of coverage on a possible Judd race.
