HIGHLAND HEIGHTS- Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear said hes confident that the Democrat Party will field a viable candidate to run against US Senator Mitch McConnell in 2014.
Itll be tough to raise the kind of money that Senator McConnell can raise because hes the king of fundraising, Beshear said. Beshear would know. He lost to McConnell in 1996.
But dont look for Beshear to go for a rematch. Beshear said on Pure Politics last year that his re-election for governor was his last one.
Actress and singer Ashley Judd has been mentioned as a potential candidate after she said at the Democratic National Convention that she wouldnt rule out running for office. But Beshear said that he has not talked to the entertainer about the race.

I am from Kentucky and I hope Ashley decides to run. Just so Mitch can kick her little ass.
This is 2 years away. I’m more interested in conservative senators in January putting up a real majority leader, instead of McConnell - a DeMint for example.
since when is Ashley Judd a singer?
“This is 2 years away. Im more interested in conservative senators in January putting up a real majority leader, instead of McConnell - a DeMint for example.”
Ditto. I also am in favor of someone opposing McConnell, and DeMint would be perfect.
