Karl Rove Promises More Ashley Judd Attack Ads

Republican strategist Karl Rove is promising more attack ads targeting actress Ashley Judd.

Judd is flirting with a bid against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who is up for re-election in 2014.

In a brutal online ad, American Crossroad tagged the actress-activist as an out-of-touch Hollywood liberal, and criticized her for living in Tennessee. Rove is the super PAC's founder, and he says there's plenty more to come.

From Politico:

Karl Rove said Thursday he’s planning much more than a sequel to the attack ad his super PAC premiered earlier this week against actress Ashley Judd, a Democrat, considering a run against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

"She’s going to get to know that she’s not going to be able to wait until the screenwriters from California and producers make her look good and prepare the ads and give her lots of lines to memorize so that she can handle these things," Rove told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. "We’re going to make her start saying where she’s coming from."
