Actress Ashley Judd has told advisers and political figures in Kentucky that she plans to announce her candidacy for the U.S. Senate this spring, according to The Huffington Post. A source said that she told an ally she plans to announce her run for the Democratic nomination for the 2014 race close to the running of the Kentucky Derby in May.

In an email response to The Huffington Post Judd said, “I am not sure who is saying this stuff, but it is not I! I’d prefer as a fan of your journalism that you stay accurate and credible. We told everyone who called us yesterday these stories are fabrications.”


One source, who is an elected official, said, “I know she knows she has to declare soon. She could always change her mind,” he added. “I changed my mind twice before I finally declared. But as of now it is a done deal.”

Judd currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, which means that she will need to establish a residence in Kentucky by November of 2013. The state’s law requires that political candidates be living in the state for one year prior to Election Day. It is expected that she will live in Lexington. She studied at the University of Kentucky and still goes to their basketball games.
