LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Ashley Judd's grandmother is shooting down talk that the actress might run as a U.S. Senate candidate from Kentucky in 2014.

Polly Judd said she doesn't think there is any chance that Ashley will run as a Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell when he is up for reelection.

The actress's 85-year-old grandmother, who is a political activist in Ashland, KY and the mother of country singer Naomi Judd, was complementary of McConnell, saying he has done more for her hometown than anyone else.

Ashley Judd hasn't ruled out a potential Senate run. Earlier in November, she said she was honored to have been mentioned as a possible candidate.
