Ashley Judd running for Senate in Kentucky?

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

The "Double Jeopardy" actress recently sidestepped the question of whether she would get into the race, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I cherish Kentucky, heart and soul, and while I'm very honoured by the consideration, we have just finished an election, so let's focus on coming together to keep moving America's families, and especially our kids, forward," she said.

In a separate occasion previously, the avid supporter of President Barack said, "Everybody's thinking about it (political office) for me.

I'm at the point where so many people have asked that I feel it is honourable to at least talk about it."

"I do a lot in the US with the Democrat Party at the county and national level and that may be the best use of me... But I'm just gonna listen to what people have to say and (decide) should I keep operating in the space I'm in or should I take the show to Washington? I don't know."

Born in Kentucky, Judd now lives in Tennessee and has to move back to her home state before she could join the 2014 election bid.

Mitch himself won re-election to a fifth term in 2008 and spent USD 20 million on his last election to beat Democrat Bruce Lunsford.
