Ashley Judd is one of those “politically active” Hollywood types who really is politically active. She attended the Democratic National Convention as a Tennessee delegate and has crossed paths with Bill Clinton several times, recently appearing with the former president on behalf of the Clinton Foundation.
Tonight on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Chuck Todd predicted that voters will be seeing more of Judd very soon, either in Kentucky or Tennessee.
Ashley Judd? Shut up, Chuck Todd.

In 2014 we have to get rid McConnel rumors of Ben Chandler or Ashley Judd to run against him. I’ll vote for them!

Chuck Todd on the rumors of Ashley Judd running for Senator in Kentucky: “That’s a serious piece of …. uh ….. speculation.”

We’ve heard talk from celebrities seeking office before, perhaps most notably Alec Baldwin’s perpetual tease of a New York City mayoral run. An Ashley Judd/Mitch McConnell matchup doesn’t seem so far-fetched, though.
If you are going to start a rumor about a Hollywood liberal challenging @team_mitch why not go above C-list? George Clooney > Ashley Judd.

George Clooney > Ashley Judd? Fact check, please.
