  • Could Ashley Judd beat Mitch McConnell?

    Politico - 12/04/2012

    There is plenty of precedent for entertainers making a successful transition into politics, and in recent years Ashley Judd has been gradually reorienting herself in that direction.

    A recent graduate of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, she is an intelligent and passionate woman who does not shy away from the issues she believes in. A Judd for Senate campaign would spark intense media interest, not just in Kentucky but nationally. And it would be particularly intriguing to see her share a debate stage with the charisma-challenged Mitch McConnell.

    The fundamental question for Ashley Judd as she weighs this decision is whether she is sufficiently in tune with the voters of Kentucky to win election – a difficult hurdle to clear, but not impossible.
