Skip to comments.Bill Clinton Encourages Both Judd and Challenger in Possible Senate Bid
Posted on 03/23/2013 8:44:14 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
Former President Bill Clinton has spoken to both Ashley Judd and Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes about the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky, encouraging them both to take a hard look at the race.
ABC News has learned that Clinton encouraged Judd to enter the race and promised he would help her, according to several Kentucky political sources. That conversation happened sometime between the November election and President Barack Obama's second inauguration.
Earlier this month Clinton met with Grimes, who is also weighing a bid, after he spoke at an event for former Kentucky Sen. Wendell Ford in Owensboro, Ky., according to multiple political sources in the state. Clinton encouraged Grimes to consider taking on McConnell, adding as he did with Judd that he would support her. The conversation was described as "candid" and "frank" with Clinton saying "all options are available" to the 34-year-old secretary of state and that she has "unlimited potential." He did add that "bigger is always better," meaning that the Senate seat would be a better choice than running for the U.S. House in the sixth district or waging a gubernatorial bid in 2015. Both are options Grimes is said to be considering.
The same sources stressed that despite the time gap, Clinton wasn't choosing Grimes over Judd or changing allegiances, but that he expressed encouragement to both, believing it's unlikely that both would enter the race.

Bubba would hit either one of them.
I wonder if Judd win’s the election, will Bill Clinton divorce Hillary and marry her?
Why not? He’s hit on a lot of younger women in his illustrious “war on women” career.
Just ask yourself - would you want to be married (chained) to Hillary for the rest of your life?
[If he exercises good Juddment, he’s Kentucky-bound).
he just wants to get in judd’s knickers and i’m sure she would let him
That’s the first time I’ve ever heard the word “encourage” used in this way. Slick Willy has certainly “encouraged” a lot of women in his time.

Hey, Ashley, I’d check Slick Willie’s record on winning endorsements before taking him on his word. He backs more losers than winners.
Meanwhile, Hillary is yucking it up with Anthony Weiner's (Muslim Brotherhood) wife. Working on cover stories for her latest betrayal of the United States since Beghazi.
You can't make this s**t up.
And Ashley, Slick might give you a nasty STD, to boot.
I bet he did!
Both have a decent chance since the Republican party has imploded.
