Larry Kudlow is the leading contender to head President Trump’s National Economic Council and would take the job if offered it, CNBC reports.
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.”
