Ashley Judd hasn’t officially announced her candidacy in an upcoming Senate race against Kentucky’s Mitch Mcconnell, but that’s not stopping Karl Rove and American Crossroads from targeting her in a very early campaign ad. But Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump says that the negative ad will only help Judd’s potential campaign.
Donald Trump is not a big fan of either Karl Rove or Ashley Judd, but when choosing which big name to attack via Twitter, the Trump went straight for Rove’s throat. Following a Twitter rant in which he labeled Rove a “total loser,” Trump went on to tweetm “See the Ashley Judd ad by @karlrove and you will definitely vote for her and love Obama.”
The latest ad targeting possible Senate candidate Ashley Judd is largely negative, attacking Judd for being a radical liberal and even (gasp) loyal to Tennessee! But according to Donald Trump, the negative nature of the advertisement shouldn’t be too big of an obstacle for Judd, should she choose to run. In fact, it may even have provided her with a helpful boost before the campaign has even gotten off to a start! According to Trump, “@karlrove’s ad is the best thing that ever happened to Ashley Judd—simply increases her profile.”
Ashley Judd may have been bothered by the latest American Crossroads ad, but she didn’t seem all that perturbed in a recent statement she made in response to all the attention: “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet.”
Do you agree with Donald Trump? Or will Karl Rove’s ad cause real damage to any future Ashley Judd campaign?
