American Crossroads Goes After Ashley Judd With $10,000 Ad Campaign (VIDEO)

American Crossroads Goes After Ashley Judd With $10,000 Ad Campaign (VIDEO)

The conservative super PAC American Crossroads on Wednesday rolled out an attack ad preemptively aimed at Ashley Judd, who is reportedly mulling a U.S. Senate bid against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) next year in Kentucky.

Behind $10,000 in digital advertising starting today, the Karl Rove-backed group will run the ad in Kentucky in two weeks. The ad — a parody of a would-be campaign spot for Judd — mocks the actress and activist for her allegiance to President Barack Obama and for previously referring to Tennessee as her home. American Crossroads detailed the campaign in an email sent out Wednesday morning.

5. Why do these rich people keep giving him money?

At this point, it may be cheaper just paying the slightly higher tax than to give it to Rove.

7. Honest opinion, they are wasting their money

I've lived in Kentucky since 1977, she doesn't stand a chance. Now if the rest of the state was like Louisville and Lexington yes, then again, we would already be a blue state if that were the case but it isn't.

11. The whole hillbilly meme won't go far, the name of her production co. is Hillbilly Films. She is a

very proud Hillbilly. They made it sound like she was insulting country folk. I think the ad was when they were asking her about hillbillies playing golf. I think she has enough film showing how she is supportive of country folks from Kentucky.
