CNBC's Kudlow Mulls Senate Bid

Monday, 02 Mar 2009 10:37 PM

CNBC columnist Larry Kudlow is considering running for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Connecticut Democrat Chris Dodd, according to Politico and several other Web sites.

Kudlow confirmed his interest in an interview with Politico Monday afternoon, adding that he was talking to political strategists about the feasibility of a statewide run. He also met with U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, who is chairman of the Senate Republican Campaign Committee, according to National Review.

“He (Cornyn) came up to me, and put it right on the table. He seems to think it would be a good race, and a national race,” Kudlow said. But Kudlow was quick to add to Politico that he enjoys his job as a CNBC anchor and commentator – and it would be tough to leave it for the world of politics.

“I’m thinking about it, that’s all I can say… it’s the kind of thing where I’m talking to friends, talking to strategists, talking to my wife, and praying on it,” Kudlow said. “It’s all come on very fast, and I don’t have any definite thoughts at all other than the fact that I am thinking about it.”

Kudlow isn't the only prominent Republican looking at running against Dodd. Former GOP congressman Rob Simmons is seriously exploring a statewide campaign, and told Politico last month that he would make a decision by the end of March.
