Conservative group blasts Ashley Judd as “Obama following, radical, Hollywood liberal”

Ashley Judd isn't a candidate for office yet, but she's getting an early dose of campaign politics.

Ashley Judd isn’t a candidate for any political office --yet -- but just talking about a possible run next year against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has made her the target of a new political ad.

American Crossroads, a conservative Super Pac is spending $10,000 on an online advertising campaign. The group was co-founded by GOP strategist Karl Rove and former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan of Inez, Kentucky.

The video pokes fun at Judd for being a self-proclaimed liberal “radical” who says she will “follow” President Obama “wherever he wants me to go.”

The ad calls Judd an “Obama following, radical, Hollywood liberal.”

I hope to get a comment from Judd regarding the political ad.

Here’s the ad. Watch it, and let me know what you think.


Judd is responding to the ad. In a statement released through her publicist, Ms. Judd thanked American Crossroads for putting a spotlight on her political thinking. “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet,” the statement said.

I welcome your thoughts and comments.
