No, Ashley Judd is not set to star in another political thriller; she's looking towards the real deal!
Gossip about the A-lister and social activist's plans to run for U.S. senate has been spreading faster than peanut butter and jelly, but it is now being predicted that she will in fact be announcing her Democratic nomination this May!
Even though the Missing star has yet to officially confirm the announcement, a source from MSNBC anticipates that Ashley will go up against Republican minority Mitch McConnell for the powerful position.
In a statement over the weekend, the actress said:
“I am not sure who is saying this stuff, but it is not I! I’d prefer as a fan of your journalism that you stay accurate and credible. We told everyone who called us yesterday these stories are fabrications.”
However, evidence like her talks with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand,her involvement with the Democratic delegation, and her protests against coal mountain-top removal point to Ashley gearing up for a heated race in 2014.
A political commentator commented:
“If she gets into this primary, she is going clear the field. I don’t know another Democrat in all of Kentucky who would step up to an Ashley Judd and be able to have that kind of fundraising prowess."
We'd vote for Ashley! We're no experts, but she definitely sounds more qualified than Arnold Schwarzenegger was when he ran for governor.
While a position in senate is VERY different from being a governor, we're just crossing our fingers that this Hollywood heavyweight has a more successful run than the Governator did! LOLz.
