Larry Kudlow Career
While still a Democrat, Kudlow endorsed Joseph Duffey’s “New Politics” senatorial campaign in Connecticut in 1970, which attracted an “A-list crowd of young Democrats,” including Yale University law student Bill Clinton, John Podesta, and Michael Medved, another future conservative. During the Vietnam War, Duffey was a notable anti-war politician.
Kudlow was described as a “great organizer” by Duffey’s campaign manager. He worked for Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s U.S. Senate campaign in 1976, alongside Tim Russert, against Conservative Party incumbent James L. Buckley, brother of William F.
