As Connecticut Republicans increasingly hope he will say yes to a U.S. Senate race in 2016, conservative TV and radio host Larry Kudlow told Newsmax he will make a decision on whether to challenge Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal “before the end of February.”
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax, Redding resident Kudlow, 68, came the closest he has so far to becoming a full-fledged candidate.
Best known as a spirited champion of smaller government and slashing tax rates, the onetime Reagan administration deputy budget director told us that the issue that motivates him the most to run is the war on terror.
“The war against ISIS is the great issue of our time,” said Kudlow, widely known for his long-running “The Kudow Report” on CNBC and his nationally-syndicated radio show. “ISIS wants to destroy America and it is in cahoots with the groups that want to destroy Israel. But we must destroy ISIS.
“It burns in me we have a mediocre, left-leaning senator agreeing with Obama that ‘global warming is the issue of our time.’ And whatever skills I have, I will use them to run a scathing campaign on this issue.”
