American Crossroads Goes After Ashley Judd With $10,000 Ad Campaign (VIDEO)

The conservative super PAC American Crossroads on Wednesday rolled out an attack ad preemptively aimed at Ashley Judd, who is reportedly mulling a U.S. Senate bid against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) next year in Kentucky.

Behind $10,000 in digital advertising starting today, the Karl Rove-backed group will run the ad in Kentucky in two weeks. The ad — a parody of a would-be campaign spot for Judd — mocks the actress and activist for her allegiance to President Barack Obama and for previously referring to Tennessee as her home. American Crossroads detailed the campaign in an email sent out Wednesday morning.
