Lewandowski has previously run for office multiple times and was unsuccessful each time. With the momentum of Donald Trump in 2020, Lewandowski is hoping that this time is different.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told Fox News on Thursday that he is strongly considering running for Senate in New Hampshire in 2020.
Lewandowski said he is “looking at” running against incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen “very hard.”
“The president needs a strong supporter of his on the ticket in New Hampshire,” Lewandowski said. “New Hampshire is a state he lost by 2,700 votes, but having a strong, unified ticket in the state will help him be successful in 2020.”
Trump narrowly lost New Hampshire to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, though he won the state’s first-in-the-nation primary that February. Lewandowski served as campaign manager for Trump’s 2016 presidential bid from January 2015 to June 2016, when Paul Manafort took over as campaign chairman.
