One of the few bright spots in an otherwise miserable 2013 has been anticipating Ashley Judd running for Congress. It’ll be way more entertaining than any of her movies.*
If she actually runs, that is. Oddly enough, the more she speaks in public, the less likely that seems to be. From the Leo Weekly in Louisville, KY:
LEO Weekly has learned from multiple Democratic sources that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is now applying the brakes to their once all-in support of Ashley Judd as the challenger of choice against Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014. While not ready to abandon Judd, they are now taking a serious second look at recruiting Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
The change of heart came after a recent poll the DSCC conducted, but not because it showed Judd was incapable of competing with McConnell, rather that Grimes performed better than Judd and gave Democrats the best chance at victory.
Not to besmirch the journalistic integrity of the LEO Weekly, but I sure hope this isn’t true. Can Alison Lindergan Grimes inspire political ads like this?
Come on, Ashley. Judd Do It.
