Larry Kudlow to rally on Tax Day with Tea Partiers

Alex Pappas Political Reporter

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow says Tea Parties “have the right story” and so he’s headlining a Tax Day event in New York later this month.

“I’m a big Tea Party supporter,” Kudlow, confirming the news, told The Daily Caller. “You know, we cover the Tea Parties on our TV show, and I write about them quite a bit.”

The well-known fiscal conservative, who likes to call the Tea Parties “free-market populism,” will take the stage at the Tax Day event hosted by Tea Party groups Staten Island Tea Party Rally for Fiscal Responsibility and Limited Government and TeaParty365.

The New York City event will take place April 15 from 7 to 9 P.M. at the James A. Farley Post Office at 8th Avenue and 31st Street.

Kudlow — who has been mentioned from time to time as a senatorial candidate in both Connecticut and New York — dismissed the notion that he’s throwing his hat into the political area any time soon. “I love my jobs at CNBC and WABC radio and I have no plans to change,” he said.
