Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear says he doesn't want to be a U.S. senator

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's one job Steve Beshear doesn't want when his run as Governor is over.

He's ruled himself out as a potential challenger to Kentucky's U.S. Senior Senator Mitch McConnell.

Beshear says he has no interest in the job, but expects a credible Democratic challenger to step forward.

Actress Ashley Judd's name has been thrown around. Sources say she's talked with a New York Senator about running and is doing opposition research on herself to see where she's most vulnerable in a political run.
