After Sen. Richard Blumenthal voted in support of the Iran nuclear deal, economist and television pundit Larry Kudlow said he is "very disappointed in that vote" and is "leaning towards" a Senate run, The Hill
"We're looking at it really carefully," Kudlow said on WFSB-TV's "Face the State" program
over the weekend. "I'm leaning towards it ... I'm not ready to make an announcement. As you know there's a lot of moving parts to these things," he added.
This is not the first time Kudlow has entertained a Senate run. The Hill stated that in 2010, the TV personality mulled over a run in an attempt to take down New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.
This time, however, he's challenging Blumenthal, saying his vote on the Iran nuclear deal "was a terrible vote" that Kudlow believes "put party over country."
The Hill notes that Kudlow, a former Democrat, made many comments on "Face the State" that hinted towards a Senate run and seemed intent on not only securing the fundraising to make a solid play in Connecticut, but also making sure his message is heard.
"I want the GOP to expand," he said, while referring specifically to gay and African-American voters, the Hill reported. "I'm going to go to the churches and I'm going to go wherever they'll let me go."
"I believe my free enterprise model will work better for them than the government welfare model they've been living with under the Democratic Party," Kudlow added. "I'm going to make that case."
