Ashley Judd is one of those “politically active” Hollywood types who really is politically active. She attended the Democratic National Convention as a Tennessee delegate and has crossed paths with Bill Clinton several times, recently appearing with the former president on behalf of the Clinton Foundation.
Tonight on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Chuck Todd predicted that voters will be seeing more of Judd very soon, either in Kentucky or Tennessee.
We’ve heard talk from celebrities seeking office before, perhaps most notably Alec Baldwin’s perpetual tease of a New York City mayoral run. An Ashley Judd/Mitch McConnell matchup doesn’t seem so far-fetched, though.
George Clooney > Ashley Judd? Fact check, please.
