LEXINGTON, KY -

 

We could see a very well known challenger to the U-S Senate Minority Leader.
     
Actress Ashley Judd told a newspaper in Lexington that she's taking a 'close look' at running against Republican Senator Mitch McConnell in 20-14.

Judd is a Democrat and said the people of the Bluegrass State 'need a fighter'.
     
Senator McConnell was first elected in 1984 and has been the top Republican in the Senate since 2007.

Judd wouldn't say if she has decided to mount a campaign.
