Rand Paul: Ashley Judd ‚Äėway to damn liberal for our country‚Äô
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Wednesday reacted to a possible Senate run by Ashley Judd by saying that the actress was so ‚Äúdamn liberal‚ÄĚ that she did not even belong in the United States.
Earlier this week, Politico reported that Judd ‚Äúis seriously exploring‚ÄĚ a bid against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in 2014 or possibly waiting until 2016 to take on Paul.
Conservative WMAL radio hosts Brian Wilson and Larry O‚ÄôConnor asked Paul to react to the news on Wednesday.
‚ÄúI heard she lives in Scotland, I thought she was running for Parliament,‚ÄĚ Paul quipped to the radio hosts delight. ‚ÄúI think she‚Äôd fit right in, in the English Parliament.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúShe‚Äôs way damn too liberal for our country, for our state,‚ÄĚ he added. ‚ÄúShe hates our biggest industry, which is coal. So, I say, good luck bringing the ‚ÄėI hate coal‚Äô message to Kentucky.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHere‚Äôs the other thing. She‚Äôs got to get back and forth from Scotland and Kentucky to campaign and they don‚Äôt have the Concord anymore. It‚Äôs going to be tough.‚ÄĚ
