Ashley Judd's grandmother skeptical of Senate run

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Polly Judd is skeptical of talk that her famous granddaughter, actress Ashley Judd, might run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky as a Democratic challenger to Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

The 85-year-old grandmother of Ashley and singer Wynonna Judd, said she doesn't think there's any possibility for such a match-up.

Polly Judd, a political activist in Ashland where she once served on the city commission, also is complimentary of McConnell, saying he has done more for her hometown than anyone else.

Ashley Judd, who has starred in such movies as "Kiss the Girls," ''Double Jeopardy," ''Where the Heart Is," and "High Crimes," hasn't ruled out a Senate run.

The former Kentuckian said in a statement earlier this month that she's "very honored" to be mentioned as a potential candidate.
