Yeah. I know, Kentucky. It sucks.
You were so excited when you heard rumors that Ashley Judd might run for U.S. Senate against minority leader (and possible cartoon turtle) Mitch McConnell.
Finally, you thought. Someone will talk about me.
So it must’ve made it all the more devastating to learn on Wednesday from a series of tweets that Judd wouldn’t follow in the celebrity-turned-politician footsteps of Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“I have spoken to so many Kentuckians over these last few months who expressed their desire for a fighter for the people & new leader,” Judd tweeted. “While that won’t be me at this time, I will continue to work as hard as I can to ensure the needs of Kentucky families are met by returning this Senate seat to whom it rightfully belongs: the people & their needs, dreams, and great potential. Thanks for even considering me as that person & know how much I love our Commonwealth.”
Keep your head up Bluegrass State.
The Kentucky Derby is only five weeks away.
