FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- President-elect Donald Trump could potentially choose some of his advisers from Connecticut, according to the Connecticut Post.

Trump confidants that were mentioned as being on the shortlist of possible aides include,

  • Larry Kudlow of Redding, syndicated columnist, conservative commentator, economic analyst and television personality.
  • Linda McMahon of Greenwich, founder of the Stamford-based WWE and a former Republican candidate for Senate.
  • Ben Proto, Trump's state campaign director, a Stratford lawyer and GOP delegate.

Kudlow spoke this week at the New Canaan Library about his new book on the advantages of having a reputation as a nice politician -- one who not only is bipartisan but who never feels the need to insult those who don’t share the same views, as reported in Daily Voice.

He had considered a run against current U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), but said at the time he likes his job as a TV and radio commentator too much to give it up for a Senate seat.

The also economist informally advised Trump while he campaigned, and hinted he would serve if asked, according to the Connecticut Post.

McMahon displayed a lack of interest in an ambassadorship or any other post, according to the Connecticut Post.

Pronto hasn't commented either way but insiders expressed he could be on tap for some type of Trump or GOP role, according to the Connecticut Post.
