On March 6, 2013 the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out a mock fundraising email for the Ashley Judd For
Tennessee Kentucky campaign:
It’s time for Kentuckians to stand up and be counted.
We need someone representing us in Washington who was a Tennessee delegate for Barack Obama in 2012.
We need someone who believes it is “unconscionable to breed."
Someone who has compared mountaintop removal mining to Rwandan genocide and has criticized Christianity as a religion that “legitimizes and seals male power.”
Someone who has called the tradition of fathers “giving away” their daughters at weddings “a common vestige of male dominion over a woman’s reproductive status.”
Finally somebody had the courage to say it!
So please, we have never had a chance to put someone who so ideally represents Kentucky values in the United States Senate.
We need to strike while the iron is hot.
The only problem: Tennessee is her home…or is it Scotland…or San Francisco?
Oh, who knows. The only thing we know for certain is we NEED her in Tennessee…I mean Kentucky!
Your sacrifice will bring Barack Obama’s liberal, big government agenda that much closer to reality.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee hired a leading pollster to “test” the waters for the Kentucky Senate race and omigod, the DSCC is producing major flop sweat over the results.
According to the Louisville Eccentric Observer, after receiving the results of the poll, the DSCC is "re-evaluating" their initial "all-in" support for Judd against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Their concerns emanate around her liberal political leanings and the stupid shit she utters.
In case you didn’t know, Judd also currently lives in Tennessee, though she grew up in Kentucky and Republicans have already sought to make her residency an issue.
After news of the disastrous poll broke, Jim Cauley, an outspoken critic of her potential run who also ran Obama's campaign for president in Kentucky in 2008, called it a potential "catastrophe" for down-ballot races in one report.
Let the games begin.
