Kentucky native Ashley Judd says she is taking a close look at running against Republican Senator Mitch McConnell in 2014.
Judd, a Hollywood actress and activist, spoke briefly on her way to the Kentucky Society of Washington's Bluegrass Ball on Saturday evening. She would not say whether she has decided to mount a campaign. Judd has been mentioned as a potential Democratic challenger to McConnell, who is the Senate Minority Leader. Judd said "the people of Kentucky are interested in me representing them is the greatest honor of my life so far."
