Run, Larry, Run! Kudlow Talks about Possible Blumenthal Challenge

On his nationally syndicated weekend radio show yesterday, while discussing the horror show of the Iran deal with Illinois congressman Peter Roskam, Larry threw down the gauntlet (beginning at 26:50):

You know, I’m going to tell you something. Maybe I’m speaking out of school, Peter, though I’ve known you for a while — if Senator Richard Blumenthal votes with Obama, on Iran, I’m going to run against him. I’m going to run against him for the Senate. The [National Republican Senatorial Committee] has come to me and talked to me about it. They’ve polled. I’m not a political guy — I’m an economist. I’m a broadcaster by profession. But I am so angry at this issue, among others — I mean Blumenthal is a big taxer to begin with, he and Dan Malloy have destroyed the state of Connecticut’s economy because of their tax and spend and regulate — but you know Peter, to some extent this Iranian thing is more important. We’re talking about world security. National security. They’re coming to get us, and Iran will finance them. They’re going to finance them. They are coming to get us. It’s a big thing. Folks have got to stand up everywhere and run, I’m telling you — a citizens’ movement. Run against people who support this terrible Iran deal.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
