Larry Kudlow Not Running for Senate

Kudlow_3.25.jpgCNBC’s Larry Kudlow has ruled out a run for the GOP nomination for a Senate seat in Connecticut. He announced it on his show last night:

Several weeks ago I was approached by the Republican party to consider a run for the U.S. Senate in the great state of Connecticut. It was a flat evening conversation and one that I thought about, but to me it was never really a serious proposition. However the story seems to have a life of its own now, it started as a solitary blog post and then spread like wildfire and now CNBC, my network is getting questions from a number of high-profile reporters wanting to know what I am going to do. I’m glad they care. Today I am letting the world know that I am not running for the united states Senate. I belong right here at CNBC. This is my love. I just signed a new long-term deal here and I can’t think of anything else I would rather do.

Earlier this year, Kudlow’s MSNBC colleague Chris Matthews ruled out a run for the Democratic nomination for a Senate seat from Pennsylvania – a dalliance that lasted nearly a year.
