Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has ruled himself out as a potential challenger to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014. Beshear says he has no interest in running against McConnell but he expects a credible Democratic challenger will step forward.

Ashley Judd has still not ruled out running for the Kentucky seat. Beshear is complimentary of her, but says he has no inside information about Judd’s possible run.
