By Daniel Gates | 5:35 pm, March 27th, 2013
Ashley Judd will NOT be running for the U.S. Senate in 2014.
The actress-activist announced her decision on Twitter on Wednesday, following weeks of serious speculation that she’d challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.
“After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities & energy at this time need to be focused on my family,” explained Judd.
She continued, “Regretfully, I am currently unable to consider a campaign for the Senate.”
Judd vowed to fight for Kentucky’s families even though it won’t be as the Democratic candidate for Senate next year.
