Ashley Judd begins making calls to House Democrats; Misdials one but reaches Rep. Clark

02/27/2013 02:21 PM

House Speaker Pro Tem Larry Clark of Louisville said he spoke briefly to actress and potential U.S. Senate candidate Ashley Judd, who asked to meet with Clark but didn’t tip her hand about her political future.

Clark said the phone call was “short” and he said he told her he would meet with her after the 30-day session ends in March.

Here’s what he said about it:

Judd also left a message last week on Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo’s phone but referred to him as “Representative Adkins.” Rep. Rocky Adkins is the Democratic floor leader.

Stumbo said he returned her call and left a message but didn’t correct her mistake. The two haven’t spoken yet.
