Kentucky is turning into on of the most interesting states for the 2014 mid-term election, with Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican leaader in the Senate, facing potential challenges from the right and the left.
The new one is a potential challenge from actress Ashley Judd, who is weighing a run in her home state. She's talked in recent days to key Democrats, including a pollster, to measure her strengths and weaknesses.
She's also said she might wait until 2016, when Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is up for re-election and might also be waging a run for the Republican presidential nomination, according to Politico.
This comes ater McClatchy and the Lexington Herald-Leader reported last week that McConnell also could face a tea party challenge from the right in a Republican primary, one reason for his need to forcefully oppose President Barack Obama in budget negotiations.
