LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Could the University of Kentucky's most famous cheerleader be the next U.S. Senator for Kentucky?

Louisville's newly reelected Congressman John Yarmuth said Ashley Judd would be a great candidate to run against Kentucky's Senior Senator and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In his victory speech Tuesday, Yarmuth blamed McConnell for the gridlock in Washington.

Wednesday, Yarmuth's campaign said Yarmuth has been saying whenever asked that Judd would make a good candidate to run against McConnell when he is up for reelection in two years.

Judd was born in Kentucky, but currently lives in Tennessee.
