Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told the Connecticut Post that he will seek re-election in 2022.
A former campaign aide for Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate August Wolf (R) claims the candidate “made unwanted sexual advances toward her and violated election laws in a new sexual harassment lawsuit,” the Connecticut Post reports.
The 12-page complaint by Samantha Menh is seeking $2.6 million in punitive and compensatory damages for Menh, who alleges that Wolf asked her if she had “ever been sexually satisfied by a real man.”
CNBC financial commentator Larry Kudlow announced that he will not run for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut this year, the Hartford Courant reports.
Said Kudlow: “The best course for me was to do exactly what I’m doing, which I love. That was the bottom, bottom line… I love being a broadcaster. I love it so much that I don’t want to give it up.”
Conservative economist and media figure Larry Kudlow says he’s talked to national Republicans about running for Senate in Connecticut, Roll Call reports.
Said Kudlow: “Maybe I’m speaking out of school but if Sen. Richard Blumenthal votes with Obama on Iran, I’m going to run against him. I’m going to run against him for the Senate. The national Senate campaign committee has come to me and talked to me about it. They polled. I’m not a political guy, I’m an economist. I’m a broadcaster by profession, but I am so angry at this issue, among others.”
