Republican ad mocks 'senate-chasing' actress Ashley Judd
Washington, Feb 7: Award-winning American actress Ashley Judd has not yet made up her mind to run for Senate in Kentucky, but she has already become the subject of an attack video posted online by a Republican super PAC American Crossroads.
Karl Rove's American Crossroads has released a brutal ad that torches Judd, who's considering a Bluegrass State bid to unseat Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, the ABC News reports.
The Super PAC ad titled "Vote For Me, You Hillbillies" takes jabs at the politically active actress, making digs at her ability to lead and paint her as an Obama-following, radical, Hollywood liberal, the paper said,
"You know what this country needs?" a narrators voice sarcastically asks in the clip. "An independent voice...for Obama."
The video then cuts to clips of Judd saying that she will "go wherever the president wants me to go," mocking her ability to separate herself from the Obama-Biden ticket, the paper added.
The American Crossroads ad also uses Judd's own words to suggest she claims to hail from Tennessee rather than Kentucky.
"And it just clicked...Tennessee is home," Ashley Judd says in a clip before the ad
continues to show video of the actress referencing "hillbillies."
Jonathan Collegio, spokesman for the Super PAC said they are not premature in putting out an ad attacking Judd.
Collegio said if you follow Kentucky politics a lot of air is being pumped into the Ashley Judd trial balloon, added they just took the opportunity to pin prick it a little bit."
The ad is supposed run for a total cost of 10,000 dollars in targeted ZIP code areas in the Bluegrass State.
