Kudlow Calls for Truce in GOP Civil War

("The Larry Kudlow Show")

Economist and radio and TV commentator Larry Kudlow made an impassioned plea Saturday for conservatives to tamp down "personal attacks and criticisms" during a presidential race that's gouged deep divisions within the GOP.

On his radio program, "The Larry Kudlow Show," the former economics adviser to President Ronald Reagan made his case for "civility" during a 12-minute commentary at the start of his program.

"What I want to say here is meant in a very positive, hopeful spirit," Kudlow cautioned at the beginning of his remarks. "Not a down spirit — an up spirit.

"This is a tough election… conservatives themselves are split," particularly over presidential candidates Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, he said.

"There's so many divisions and some of the divisions … have spilled over in very personal attacks and criticisms," he added. "My plea to my fellow conservatives and others is to please seek civility rather than acrimony."

"This is such a weird election," Kudlow reiterated. "We've probably never seen anything like it in our lifetime.

"Nobody's perfect, Lord knows. None of the candidates are perfect.

"I, Larry Kudlow, am not perfect," he said, "but my plea to my fellow conservatives and others is to please seek civility rather than acrimony."

Kudlow said he enjoys discussions and debates, "but when it spills over into the personal… hearts are broken."

Conservatives have "a big stake" in the upcoming election, he says.

"Conservatives are… still the most  powerful force in politics," he said, but "we lose that" when "our divisions are so deep."

"The infighting should be about substance not personality," he said. "It should be about policies."
