Ashley Judd has only said that she is considering running for Senate in her home state of Kentucky.
But her potential opponent Mitch McConnell is treating her as a real threat, and he's called in the big guns- conservative strategist Karl Rove!
Rove's American Crossroads group has already made its first ad attacking the Double Jeopardy star. He says:
"We are making fun of her…
This is the opening ad. She’s not going to be able to wait until the screenwriters from California and producers make her look good and prepare the ads and give her lots of lines to memorize so that she can handle these things."
Ashley's rep responded:
"Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet."
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see the opening volley of what is sure to be a mudslinging massacre.
Clearly Rove and McConnell are NOT worried about looking like bullies on this one!
