Former Queens Senator Maltese Calls Kudlow Rock Solid

(BUFFALO, NY) – Former New York Conservative Party State Chairman and co-founder Serphin Maltese today announced he will serve as co-chairman of the Draft Larry Kudlow Committee, a group working to recruit the popular CNBC commentator to run against liberal Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

“Larry Kudlow’s potential candidacy represents a very real opportunity to replace Senator Schumer, so I’m excited to work with Larry’s thousands of supporters,” said former State Senator Maltese. “We will work with Republicans and Conservatives to back Larry Kudlow who we are certain can give Schumer a run for his money and win.”

“Larry’s an accomplished pro-growth economist, but he is also rock solid on core conservative values," said Senator Maltese, a longtime advocate of conservative policies and principles. “He is a leader for a strong national defense, he’s a staunch defender of our Second Amendment rights and he opposes abortion on demand. These are the vital issues that concern all of us in New York State and the nation.”

Senator Maltese was first elected to the New York State Senate in November of 1988 on the Republican, Conservative and Right to Life Party lines. He was reelected for ten terms, serving the 15th Senatorial District in Queens County in the City of New York. He also served as Chairman of the Queens County Republican Party for ten years and he retains the title of Honorary Chairman today.

Synonymous with the Empire State’s unique conservative movement, Senator Maltese was a co-founder the New York State Conservative Party in 1962 and became its executive director in 1971. He ascended to the chairmanship in 1986. He also served as an advisor to US Senators James Buckley and Alfonse D’Amato and as New York State Chairman of Conservatives for Ronald Reagan in 1980. His is also a 25-year member of the National Board of Directors of the American Conservative Union.

Serph Maltese was an early backer and longtime friend of the late Jack Kemp, who Larry Kudlow advised on economics and monetary policy.


The Draft Larry Kudlow Committee was formed in Buffalo in January to gather support for the renowned pro-growth economist’s potential run for the US Senate against New York’s senior Senator Chuck Schumer. Senator Maltese joins founding co-chairmen Dr. David Tukey of Manhattan and Michael Caputo of Buffalo. The committee is registered with the Federal Election Commission but does not operate at the behest of Mr. Kudlow.

In just a few short weeks, the group is has gathered thousands of members at and on Facebook at
