Actress Ashley Judd purchased house in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Actress Ashley Judd had purchased a house in the northeastern Kentucky city of Ashland when she was considering running for U.S. Senate.

Boyd County Property Valuation Administrator Chuck Adkins said Monday that Judd paid $120,000 for the house that once belonged to her father, Michael Charles Ciminella. The deal was finalized in March, about a week before Judd announced her decision not to run against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell.

To run for Senate, Judd, a resident of Tennessee, would have had to establish a residence in Kentucky. She lived in Ashland for a while as a teenager and attended Paul G. Blazer High School.

Her grandmother, Polly Judd, still lives in Ashland.

Adkins said Judd likely purchased the house on Morningside Drive for sentimental reasons.
