Recently Ashley Judd spoke to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand about possibly running for Senate in 2014. Alternatively, she might wait until 2016 to go up against Kentucky Republican and spawn of Ron Paul, Rand Paul. State Democratic senator Rep. John Yarmuth says that Judd's beyond your average pompous Hollywood liberal: "[Judd] is doing all the things that a serious candidate exploring a race should do... I think there are a lot of people, and I was one of them, who wanted to let her know that her candidacy would be an exciting prospect for us... A lot of the labor unions, they were telling me that too." So, hey, Bluegrass State, the lady from Heat might be your competent future senator. (She did write a kickass feminist essay earlier this year!) [Politico]
