Ashley Judd Responds To Crossroads Ad

Responding to a new ad campaign against her, actress and potential Senate candidate Ashley Judd thanked conservative super PAC American Crossroads on Wednesday for “all the attention” in a statement from her publicist, the Washington Post reports. Judd is mulling a run against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). 

“Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet,” the publicist wrote in an email. 

American Crossroads is putting $10,000 behind the ad, which paints Judd as a Hollywood liberal who calls Tennessee — not Kentucky  — her home.
