LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky native Ashley Judd says she is “taking a close look” at running against Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014.

Judd, a Hollywood actress and activist, spoke briefly to The Courier-Journal on her way to the Kentucky Society of Washington's Bluegrass Ball on Saturday evening. Judd would not say whether she has decided to mount a campaign.

She said “the people of Kentucky need a fighter.”

Judd has been mentioned as a potential Democratic challenger to McConnell, who is the Senate Minority Leader.

McConnell did not attend the Bluegrass Ball.

Judd said that “the people of Kentucky are interested in me representing them is the greatest honor of my life so far.”
