CNBC’s Larry Kudlow Leaning Toward Senate Campaign

By Mark Joyella 

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow is “leaning toward” a run for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut as a protest against Senator Richard Blumenthal over his support of the Iran deal. Kudlow talked about his thinking with WFSB’s Dennis House on the CBS affiliate’s public affairs program, Face the State.

Kudlow, a senior contributor at CNBC, says making a final decision on the race involves a “lot of moving parts,” but he vows he would run a unique race as a Republican, expanding the base and keeping it local. “If I do this…I will not depend on people from out of state.”

House notes it would be a tough fight. It’s been 77 years since a Republican challenger defeated a Democratic senator in Connecticut.
