Prominent Democrats Seek Alternative to Ashley Judd

"Democratic heavy-hitters -- including Bill Clinton -- are quietly trying to woo a new candidate to jump into the race to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, even as actress Ashley Judd is taking steps toward launching a star-studded campaign of her own," Politico reports.

"With fears growing in some Democratic quarters over Judd's potential candidacy, some prominent Democrats in the Bluegrass State are beginning to set their sights on 34-year-old Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky secretary of state. Among Grimes' attributes: She lacks political baggage since she's served barely a year in office, and she hails from a well-connected family influential in Kentucky Democratic politics. But it's not at all certain if she'll jump into the race."
