Judd Reaching out to KY Democrats (VIDEO)
By AP
FRANKFORT, KY - Actress Ashley Judd is continuing to reach out to Kentucky Democrats as she weighs a run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky.
 
The Kentucky native hasn't said she will get into the race, but she has been contacting several people, including Gov. Steve Beshear, to discuss her options.
 
House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Speaker Pro Tem Larry Clark said Wednesday they also have gotten calls from Judd.
 
Judd lives in Tennessee and would have to re-establish a residence in Kentucky to take on Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in his 2014 re-election bid.
 
No Democrats have stepped forward to challenge McConnell, a political powerhouse who already has raised $10 million for his re-election.
 
McConnell, the longest serving U.S. senator in Kentucky history, spent some $20 million on his last election.
