Whoa! We're not sure how Mother Jones got these candid recordings of Mitch McConnell and his staff, but one thing is clear- they were NOT planning to fight fair against Ashley Judd!

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:
