Former Reagan economic aide and CNBC host Larry Kudlow is again considering a run at the U.S. Senate, according to multiple reports.

Kudlow and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) are renewing discussions on the possibility of Kudlow, 67, challenging a Democratic incumbent for the Senate in one of two of the country’s bluest states, the National Review reports.

Kudlow is the top NRSC potential challenger to take on Chuck Schumer in New York and Richard Blumenthal in Connecticut. Kudlow owns residences in both states.

Kudlow's only comment on the matter was a reply to a nudge to run on Twitter: "Thinking ……Thanks," he wrote, Kudlow considered a run against Schumer in 2010, but ultimately declined, according to The Washington Examiner.

He also considered challenging former Connecticut senator Christopher Dodd, but favored his job as a television host at CNBC instead. A run in either blue state will be a difficult task.

Schumer has held federal office for 35 years and is the likely replacement to Harry Reid as Democratic leader in the Senate. Blumenthal was elected in 2010 and maintains a positive approval rating, according to Public Policy Polling.

When asked about the possible matchup, a spokesman for the NRSC responded, "It's standard policy that we don’t discuss recruitment in the press," the National Review noted.
