    Ashley Judd leaves open possible candidacy against McConnell:
    Actress Ashley Judd, said to be mulling a Democratic campaign against Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican who is minority leader of the U.S. Senate, refused to rule out a run against him in 2014 in a one-sentence statement to The Courier-Journal
    “I cherish Kentucky, heart and soul, and while I’m very honored by the consideration, we have just finished an election, so let’s focus on coming together to keep moving America’s families, and especially our kids, forward,” Judd said in a statement released by her publicist.

        human being who reeks gravitas, intelligence and class.

        Does anyone know where to write to urge her to enter the race and to pledge support and money? She is very popular in KY and would have a good chance to retire Mitch from the national stage.

        And did I mention she is a great actress who has not been given roles that measure up to her talent?
