Larry Kudlow

"Am I not right, still?"

MIANUS, Connecticut -- Media economist Larry Kudlow is again hinting he might run for the U.S. Senate.

The campaign was signaled on the website NewsMax, which is singularly unreliable except for describing what is happening in Republican Party cloakrooms. The website said Kudlow told potential backers he was displeased that incumbent Senator Richard Blumenthal voted for the Iran nuclear deal. Kudlow surprised no one by vowing to line up with the Republicans. They not only voted against the deal but voted earlier to change it from a "treaty" they could block into a "deal" they could not.

Kudlow would have the advantage that voters would know what he looks like, as readers of this page now do, as well, not that that is an advantage. There are much fewer of them since Kudlow retired from his daily gig on CNBC, but literally dozens in metropolitan New York City can still recognize his voice from his radio show, where he takes a pro-immigration stand, something that worked almost as well for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in August as backing ethanol subsidies. The show assembles several fellow Reagan-era economists and department heads, who make the case that illegals don't just undercut Americans for menial jobs, but use the wages to bid up the prices of consumer goods — which is good for business.

Kudlow says, "I want the GOP to expand," referring specifically to gay and African American voters. "I'm going to go to the churches and I'm going to go wherever they'll let me go." Few churches have barred the doors to Kudlow — at least since he converted to Catholicism — but he did not specify what he is going to do to satisfy the gays.

Kudlow signaled a run for Senate in 2010, to defeat Chuck Schumer. He would have listed the CNBC studios as his Principal Residence to qualify for the seat from New York State. In 2016, he would have to explain to voters why Republicans, who told them in 2014 they could not deliver results unless given a Senate majority, then got it and continued not delivering results, why they need another seat. It would not be to confront President Hillary Clinton with a government shutdown, which Kudlow has called a "silly stunt."

Kudlow has not endorsed Jeb Bush for President, but has endorsed Bush's call for the economy to grow at 4% per year after a series of tax-code changes, unspecified but surely including cuts in corporate taxes that will not draw any opposition. "I was in the 3½% camp," says Kudlow, "but decided to jump in with both feet. I'm now a 4% guy."

Presidential front-runner Donald Trump said of a Kudlow Senate campaign, "If his financial advice were any good, he wouldn't need to suck up to contributors. I don't need to be nice to anyone. Would you like to see my balance sheet again?"

If unsuccessful, Kudlow has several other promising career options, including continuing his drive to elbow out Oscar Wilde and Chuck Norris as website memes.
