Ashley Judd may not have found any politicians lurking in her genealogy while being featured on NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are, but there’s always a chance to be the first, right? Rumor has it Ashley might be running for senator and it doesn’t look like the celeb is doing anything to end the gossip.
Long passionate about a whole host of political issues, it looks like Ashley Judd might be ready to change her profession from actress to politician! The celeb has long been rumored to have been thinking of a run for senate, but now it appears that her own mother is adding fuel to the fire. When asked during an interview with Larry King if she thought her daughter might wind up as a politician, Naomi Judd explained that, “As of right now, she doesn’t know,” adding, “I can tell you she’s very interested in changing the world and she know that politics unfortunately right now is one of the ways she could do that.”
Naomi suggested that, if her daughter did run for senate, the big race might not occur until 2016. This is when current Senator Rand Paul will be up for re-election. Now, whether Ashley Judd or Rand Paul is a better fit for senator — that’s already being debated, but of course, Naomi is a bit biased. “”I will just say, and this is just coming from me personally, I cannot talk for Ashley…I think Ashley would be absolutely one of the best things that ever happened to politics.”
