Politico reports that Ashley Judd is serious about considering a run for Senate in Kentucky, possibly to challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014.
Judd "is doing all the things that a serious candidate exploring a race should do,” Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) told Politico after speaking with her. "I think there are a lot of people, and I was one of them, who wanted to let her know that her candidacy would be an exciting prospect for us. That’s what I wanted her to know. A lot of the labor unions, they were telling me that too."
