RNC Considering Corey Lewandowski For U.S. Senate

It’s just business as usual for the RNC:

GOP sources told Granite State affiliate WMUR that Mr. Lewandowski’s name was brought up this week at a Charlotte, North Carolina, Republican National Committee meeting to take on Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who’s looking to be elected for a third time.

The current field of GOP challengers is likely to include New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien, retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc and attorney Bryant Messner.

With Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Bolduc having heavy support from Trump loyalists, Mr. Lewandowski’s candidacy would shake up the race and make him an instant frontrunner due to being closely aligned with Mr. Trump.

His first major run for office would also include ample funding, being a notable public figure among Trump’s associates.

Lewandowski confirmed that he is weighing out a run against Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, and explained to Fox News the strategical reason behind a possible run:

“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.”

Sources say that Lewandowski is expected to travel with Trump on Thursday to Cincinnati, and may broach the subject with the president at that time.

A real stand-up guy, that Corey Lewandowski. If he does become New Hampshire’s next senator, I sure hope someone makes it clear to his staff that no matter what Sen. Lewandowski might say, laying hands on someone and bruising them because they’re asking your boss a challenging question is a definite no-no.

  1. The Lowest Common Denominator applies here. The average voter’s attention span is too short to connect those dots.
