Ashley Judd Is Making Kentucky Democrats Nervous

ashley_juddIf the actress runs against Mitch McConnell, Democrats fear she could hurt the party brand in the Bluegrass State.

The honeymoon is over for Ashley Judd.

At a time when Democrats in Washington are having second thoughts about embracing Ashley Judd as their standard-bearer against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014, Kentucky Democrats are waving red flags about the actress, arguing that her candidacy plays into the GOP’s strengths and tarnishes the party brand in the Bluegrass State.

“She’s gonna have a tough row to hoe,” said Jim Cauley, who ran Gov. Steve Beshear’s 2007 campaign and also worked on President Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign. “She doesn’t fit the damn state. That’s her problem. I don’t think she fits the voters of the state of Kentucky.”
