Actress Ashley Judd might just consider a run for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky. The Kiss the Girls star said in a press statement on Friday that she is honored to have supporters encouraging her to run for a Senate seat in her former home state. While she is not confirming any plans yet to run for office, she has said it is something she might consider in the future.
At an event in September sponsored by Marie Claire magazine and EMILY’s List, Ashley Judd said she receives “a lot of encouragement to run” for office. The idea is something she is open to, saying at the event that she wants to serve and it could “be time to look at possibly running for office.”
