Would Ashley Judd really have a chance against Mitch McConnell? I would have thought “no” but maybe she does:
Actress Ashley Judd hasn’t declared if she’ll challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in next year’s Kentucky Senate race. But from the way Republicans are acting, they sound a little bit jumpy about the prospect of her campaign.
[F]or an undeclared candidate whose liberal views make her candidacy vulnerable to attack, they’re doing an awful lot to dissuade her from running. Why not wait until she’s actually in the race before launching grade-A opposition research against her? Democrats believe that it’s a sign of how vulnerable McConnell is. Even his own polling, released in December, showed McConnell stuck at 47 percent against Judd, holding only a 4-point lead.
I’m not that keen on celebrities running for big-time political offices, but this one could be entertaining for a lot of reasons. It’s been a while since I’ve heard much about HOLLYWOOD LIBRULS outside of the Breitbartosphere and I’m curious to see if a glamorous movie star excites the same sexual pundit passions that John Thune and Sarah Palin did.
Should be a fun race, right?
