Judd buys home just before senate run announcement

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ashley Judd bought a home in Kentucky while considering whether to run for US Senate against Mitch McConnell.

Hollywood stars sometimes spend millions on a home, but Judd reportedly paid $120,000 for the house in Ashland.

The deal was finalized about a week before Judd announced she would not run against Senator Mitch McConnell.

Judd is a resident of Tennessee, so in order to run for Senate, she would have had to establish a residence in Kentucky.

The actress lived in Ashland as a teen, and her grandmother still lives there.

A county official says Judd likely purchased the home for sentimental reasons.
