MILFORD, Conn., Dec. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the latest step in a statewide effort to encourage longtime Redding resident Larry Kudlow to run for the United States Senate, Jack Fowler, Milford resident and publisher of National Review,* today announced the formation of Jobs for Connecticut, a 527 organization designed to test-the-waters for what many in the state hope will become a campaign for Larry Kudlow should he decide to become a candidate.

"Under the Malloy-Blumenthal regime, Connecticut hasn't just gone sideways, we have gone backwards. The state has been consistently hemorrhaging jobs and torturing businesses from Torrington to Trumbull with senseless taxes and regulations," said Fowler. "The time has come to stand up to the Malloy-Blumenthal tax hike machine, to stand up for small businesses, and to stand up for middle income households. The time has come for change, and as someone who has known Larry Kudlow for 24 years, I know he has the guts, backbone, experience and good sense to make a real difference for our state."

Fowler went on to say, "There isn't anyone better equipped to help grow our economy, keep our country safe, and shake-up business as usual in Washington than Larry Kudlow. As Larry thoughtfully continues to weigh whether he should run for the United States Senate, I know in my heart if he jumps in he will be a happy warrior for every Connecticut taxpayer and the tireless, optimistic leader our great state so desperately needs right now."

On national security, Fowler said, "Larry believes we can and must do better when it comes to national security. We need new leadership that recognizes what a catastrophic disaster the Iran nuclear deal is for the safety of our country while also recognizing that America should be leading the fight to destroy ISIS wherever it rears its ugly head."

The Jobs for Connecticut's website,, is currently accepting contributions up to $2,700 per person.
