Ashley Judd maintains that she has not made a decision regarding a potential run for the United States Senate, but all clues suggest that an entry into the election is imminent for the actress and former guest on Who Do You Think You Are? The latest sign pointing to Ashley’s participation in the Senate race? A recent meeting with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Is Ashley Judd planning to oust Mitch McConnell from his current spot on the Senate? Hard to say for sure, especially given a recent statement in which Ashley thanked American Crossroads for targeting her in an attack ad and then explained that she’s still in the midst of considering “her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet.”
Still no decision, but Ashley’s showing all the signs of a politician serious about launching a campaign. On Tuesday, the actress turned activist visited Washington D.C. to meet with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), a group responsible for recruiting Democratic candidates as well as assisting in election strategy and fundraising. The nature of the discussion remains unknown, but we can assume that it had something to do with the upcoming Senate race in Kentucky.
Although American Crossroads and other conservative groups smugly predict Ashley’s inability to win the election (which is exactly why they are so eager for her to run), polls suggest that the race could be closer than you might expect. One poll found that Ashley Judd would begin the race just four points behind Mitch McConnell, although that gap could easily increase if she struggled to fend off the attacks that are sure to arrive the moment she announces her candidacy.
