Fox News host Sean Hannity is urging actress Ashley Judd to make a run against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell next year, saying her liberal Democratic views would make the race exciting and would almost certainly assure the five-term Republican's re-election.

“If she was running in New York or Massachusetts — totally different story,” Hannity said on the air. “She’s running in Kentucky. Kentucky elected Rand Paul, and she’s not going to win.

“I want her to run because it’s going to be entertaining as hell,” he added.

Judd has been making what looks like preparations for several weeks now to enter the Senate contest. But former President Bill Clinton and other Democrats have been urging Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, among others, to jump in, reports Politico.

Hannity joked that Judd shouldn’t listen to Clinton or anybody else.

“Tonight, right here on this program, I am making a personal plea to Ashley Judd,” he said. “I am urging you for the sake of the Democratic Party, for the sake of the country, ignore the former philandering president, throw your hat in the race. . . . Run, Ashley, run.”
