Senator Paul: Judd doesn't represent Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Sen. Rand Paul says actress and activist Ashley Judd, who is considering a Senate run against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, doesn't really represent Kentucky or even live in the state.

The junior Kentucky senator made the comments Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked about potential 2014 challengers to McConnell.

An ad recently released by the American Crossroads PAC shows Kentucky native Judd in videos that reference her involvement in Democratic politics in Tennessee, where she lives.

Republican Paul said Judd is a famous actress who is attractive and articulate. But, he said, she "doesn't really represent Kentucky."
