Miss America mulls run on Mitch McConnell for Senate seat

Dems just can't wait to get rid of Mitch McConnell ...

First Hollywood. Now a beauty queen. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s “maybe” challengers for his senate seat has moved from Ashley Judd – who decided against a run weeks ago – to Heather French Henry, the Miss America for 2000.

“I’m not saying no yet, but I’m not saying yes,” she said, to The Hill. “I certainly see myself, in the future, in some sort of political office.”

She’s just not sure if 2014 is the year, Ms. Henry said. Still, she’s being “urged,” she said, in The Hill.

“There’s not a day that goes by that someone doesn’t mention it,” including “people in higher political positions,” she said. “[But] I have in no way, shape or form solicited any comments or any advice from anyone on any Senate race.”

Ms. Henry is the wife of former Democrat Kentucky Lt. Gov. Steve Henry. Democrats have been struggling to find a suitable challenger for Mr. McConnell, the minority leader. Ashley Judd turned away from the opportunity, citing family reasons. Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is a likely strong contender for Democrats, but she has yet to decide whether she’ll run.
