She hasn't even said she's running for office, but Ashley Judd already has people on both sides of the party line talking.

Democratic governor Steve Beshear says Judd would be "an effective and formidable" challenger to current U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell if she does decide to run.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo agrees.

State republican party chairman Steve Robertson says that's not the case.

He sent a letter to lawmakers saying Judd is out of step with the average Kentuckian.

He cites the fact that she's spoken out against the coal industry as just one of the reasons.
