Democratic Challengers

Ashley Judd Hints At Senate Run In Ohio Speech

Mar 22, 2013

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Actress Ashley Judd gave a not-so-subtle hint on Friday that she's nearing a decision about seeking the Democratic nomination to run against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.

In a speech at an American Counseling Association meeting in Cincinnati, Judd said she once didn't like criticism, which she said is ironic because she's "about to get $40 million worth of it." WXIX-TV first reported Judd's comments Friday.
