Ashley Judd still mum on US Senate run in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Actress Ashley Judd is still mum about whether she's considering a run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky as a Democratic challenger to Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014.

Judd, a former Kentucky resident now living in Tennessee, hasn't ruled out a run. But neither has she said anything to suggest that she would enter the race.

Her publicist said Tuesday nothing has changed since Judd released a statement last month saying she was honored to be mentioned as a potential candidate.

No Democrats have stepped forward to challenge McConnell, a political powerhouse who already has $6.8 million for his re-election.

McConnell, now in his fifth term, is the longest-serving U.S. senator in Kentucky history. He spent some $20 million on his last election to defeat a wealthy Louisville businessman.
