Will Ashley Judd Challenge Mitch McConnell for Senate? Kentucky Democrats Think So

Watch the Video at Link

SNIP:
"I think the contrast would be so marked and I think it will be someone with a vision for the future and someone so stuck in a rut in the past that he no longer represents the future of the commonwealth," Yarmuth said.

One thing that's guaranteed is it will be a brutal race -- a 30-year veteran of Washington against a Hollywood star active in liberal Democratic politics from a legendary family. Judd's mother is the country singer Naomi Judd and her half-sister is the singer Wynonna Judd.

Yarmuth says Judd is ready and has even done opposition research on herself to see areas McConnell will try to "exploit."

"I think she has no illusions about what Mitch McConnell will do and the fact that his entire career he has demonized opponents and never talks about himself," Yarmuth said. "In her world she is used to dealing with a lot of nonsense so I think she will deal with it very well."

1. This is blowing my mind that it might become

a reality, she!

Wondering if her Mom and Sis would do any benefits for her? One thing.. win or lose it will definitely be a Win for Women Everywhere because the Nation and the World will see upfront and personal how these lying fascists disrespect women.

Ashley will have money pouring into her campaign!

2. I really believe she will be throwing her hat in the ring!

Yarmuth says Judd is ready and has even done opposition research on herself to see areas McConnell will try to "exploit."


We sure know what area he will "exploit"...and that will work in her favor. In the attack ad, they are already saying that she is a blind follower! They just can't get over their Stupid! I hope they bury themselves!

Women sure will be watching this closely, Cha!

6. The last polling I saw had them tied

44% among women voters. The turtle had an 18% lead among men.

5. I'm not so sure about Mom and Sis. I believe......

they're both Republicans, albeit not of the Teabagger variety. They'll probably just stay out of it.

3. Not going to be an easy one

But it will be a hell of a fight regardless. The last article I read said her unfavorability jumps to 48 percent when the pollster reminds them that she supports President Obama and his agenda. We know the GOP will take that line in their attacks since Obama is unpopular there, losing the state 61-38 to Mittens.

Three major factors in this state will be the GOP attack ads linking her to the President, turnout, and her stance on gun control. She will definitely have to jump to the middle in that state, may be a tough transition for her since she is so passionate about her causes.

9. I hope

Miss Judd runs against the Turtleman. I will donate to her campaign, from California. Her and Senator Warren, would be nice to see.
