Ashley Judd will not mount a challenge to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in 2014, she announced today.
From the Washington Post:
Democratic Senate strategists have argued that Judd would be a good, if unconventional candidate, pointing to her ability to rival or even eclipse McConnell in fundraising. But McConnell’s path to victory involves savaging his opponent, and Judd’s status as an actress and celebrity would have offered him loads of ammunition.
The most likely Democratic candidate is now Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes.
