A source close to the Ashley Judd team told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that the liberal actress really is planning and preparing to challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014 for his Kentucky seat. MyFoxdc.com reported the following on Friday:
“At least in Ashley’s mind, it is happening,” said the insider. “She has devoted herself to many important causes and stepped away from the Hollywood spotlight so this seems like the logical next step. I don’t know if she will be successful, but her heart is in the right place.”
Judd, 44, has reportedly been meeting with well-financed Democratic donors, and last week ventured to Washington D.C for more public engagements.According to Don Peebles, Chairman and CEO of The Peebles Corporation, a member of President Obama’s National Finance Committee, and Vice-Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, a Judd run is likely much more than a Hollywood fantasy.
