Actress Ashley Judd, a potential 2014 Democratic U.S. Senate challenger to Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), will refuse to take questions from the press at an event this afternoon at George Washington University.
Event organizers told reporters here at the event on the GWU campus in the Foggy Bottom area of Washington, D.C., that she will only take a few questions from students if that.
One organizer said security around her is tight and that they will be whisking her in and out.
Judd’s refusal to answer press questions comes as President Barack Obama’s White House has waged an attack campaign against veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward.
Judd is set to give remarks to the GW School of Public Health and Health Services.
In her introduction of Judd, GW Dean Lynn Goldman ironically praised the presence of multiple journalists in the crowd, saying she was “thrilled” reporters are here despite their inability to ask Judd any questions.
