Yarmuth says Ashley Judd may run for office

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Will she or won't she? That's the question many are asking about Ashley Judd possibly running against Kentucky U-S Senator Mitch McConnell.

Congressman John Yarmuth says he's talked with Judd, who is from Kentucky.

He says the actress is weighing the possibility of running for office.

Yarmuth says he's not interested in the seat, but it's a top priority to find a good candidate to run against McConnell.

And, Judd may be eyeing something other than McConnell's seat.

Yarmuth says, "I think she's very interested in becoming a candidate for some office whether it's next year against Mitch McConnell or it's against Rand Paul whether it's for some other office I don't know, but she's a very serious potential candidate."

Judd hasn't said whether she'll enter the race.
