Take no chances. Strike hard and immediately. Take her out of the race now. Don’t give her a chance to even have a distant chance. I speak from the land of Hillary and her carpet bag. The NY RNC underestimated her and she got elected. The same could happen in Kentucky if they aren’t careful.

You’re correct. Mitch has to be “on it” and hammer her NOW, before she gets traction.

McConnell's campaign (run by a close Rand Paul associate) has punched her in the nose a couple times over the last week or two. On VERY good issues (her being anti-coal and anti-children, for instance).
Its an early and good sign that he intends to be aggressive. There could be a big problem if he's overaggressive tho - Ashley turns on the tears and plays the abused woman victim card.
She could very well split the KY Dem Party too. Except for Yarmuth (who would benefit from her running), pretty much the rest of major KY Dem players are keeping their distance if not stating that she could cause problems to most down-ticket races. In a perfect scenario she'll have to face off against at least one good ol' boy KY Dem who's been patiently waiting his term to take on Mitch and will take damage as a result.
My fear, as expressed earlier, is that some inexperienced/undisciplined Conservative will come out of the woodwork and mount a credible and possibly successful primary campaign against McConnell, and will either damage McConnell or win the nomination but then go down in flames in the General. Like what happened in Indiana and Missouri.
The NE Dem Establishment is drooling over this possibility. See Katrina vanden Heuvel's article in the WAPO a couple weeks back
where she says: Theres increasing talk of potential challengers such as Ashley Judd, and Kentuckys liberal and tea party groups unlikely bedfellows, to be sure are mulling the possibility of teaming up in an effort to bring McConnell down.
