This keeps Lewandowski close to the Trump team and positions him to help the Trump 2020 re-election effort.
Corey Lewandowski, who helped Donald Trump win the Republican nomination, is getting back in the campaign game.
He is joining Vice President Pence’s political action committee, which will enable him to travel with the VP and puts him firmly back in the president’s 2020 reelection orbit, say sources familiar with the move.
Lewandowski discussed the move with Trump before accepting the offer and is taking the job with the president’s blessing, these sources say.
By hiring such a high-profile Trump adviser, Pence is also sending a signal that there’s no daylight between him and his boss, despite some media chatter that the PAC could help further his own ambitions if Trump winds up not running again. The Great America Committee is the first such political arm created by a sitting vice president, but can only be used to donate to other campaigns and not to back any future Pence effort.
