Actress Ashley Judd's next role will not be as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky.
Judd said on Wednesday she has decided not to run in 2014 to try to unseat Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, after considering such a candidacy for months.
"After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities and energy at this time need to be focused on my family," she wrote on Twitter.
Judd and her husband, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti, announced in January that they had decided to end their 11-year marriage.
Judd, 44, considers Kentucky her home state but actually lives in neighboring Tennessee. She would have had to move to Kentucky in order to qualify as a candidate...

Is she performing a trick?
As Levin said yesterday, Rove was stupid to chase her out so early
She has to focus on dissolving her family.
Stupid, or deceitful. I don’t trust Porky Pig at all.
She looks like a cartoon.
She would have beaten McConnell like a rented mule. All his advantages would have been disadvantages.
Do you have to say which state you reside in when you file for divorce. That might have been interesting if they filed in TN, said lived in TN, then ran for office in Kentucky.
Is that an actual human?
I am surprised. Her sister is currently on dancing with the stars, and I thought Ashley would try to steal the spotlight.
Of course both names and addresses must appear on divorce documents, which are typically issued by only one state.
Scary (photoshopped) picture, but it appears our li’l Ashley is scarier in reality. She must be a real treat to interact with daily.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting / but a woman who fears The Lord is to be praised”—Proverbs
No, she's preparing to audition for the title role in the ET remake.
I’m surprised she turned out to be such a goof. I heard her speak once about choosing life for her daughter, Winona, when she was an unmarried teen and it was very touching.
I assume you're talking about Winona and Ashley's mom, Naomi.
They have not filed yet!
They married in Scotland, so they probably could divorce there.
But I still wonder if this address thing played a role in her withdrawal. Or maybe she just didn’t want to stress out her ‘companion animal’.
Oh, your’re exactly right. No wonder I’m confused! :^)
Is this picture doctored? Why are her breasts hanging down to her stomach?
‘...she would have beaten McConnell...’
sadly, these days, seems any liberal ‘celebrity’ can beat any Republican. Glad she opted out.
Kentucky has a state income tax rate of 6% on income over $75,000. Tennessee only taxes income from interest and dividends. I think that explains why she lives in Tennessee.
