The congressional campaign of Republican John Faso is receiving a boost from Larry Kudlow, the former Wall Street banker-turned-CNBC host who is respected economist and pundit within GOP circles.

The Faso campaign has released a fundraising email signed by Kudlow, which tout’s Faso’s bonafides as a budget hawk and fiscal watchdog.

“John Faso will champion tax reforms to let Americans keep more of what they earn. He will also vote to change counterproductive business tax rules to bring trillions of U.S. dollars and millions of jobs back to this country. That will help guarantee America’s position as the world center of capital and investment for years to come,” Kudlow wrote in the email. “He won’t forget the Main Street economy either: John supports cutting taxes and regulations that adversely impact small business employment.”

Republicans for the last several years have sought to recruit Kudlow himself into running for office, first as a potential U.S. Senate candidate in New York and, most recently, Connecticut.

Still, he remains an in-demand speaker for Republican functions and earlier this year endorsed Donald Trump for president.

Faso, a former Assembly minority leader, is running for the Hudson Valley congressional district that is being vacated by Rep. Chris Gibson. He faces a three-way primary next month against businessman Andrew Heaney and Robert Bishop.
