Corey Lewandowski, political commentator, and former campaign manager for then-candidate Donald Trump said on Twitter that he would not be running for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.
“After much consideration, I have decided to forgo a campaign for the U.S. Senate. While taking on a career politician from the Washington swamp is a tall order, I am certain I would have won. My priorities remain my family and ensuring that [Trump] is re-elected as POTUS,” Lewandowski wrote on Twitter.
He said that he will focus instead on Trump’s re-election efforts and will soon endorse a Republican running for the Senate in New Hampshire.
“I am truly humbled by the outpouring of support I have received from people across New Hampshire and the country. N.H. needs a U.S. Senator who will put our citizens first and not illegal aliens; one who will support pro-growth policies to keep the Trump economy strong,” he added in the Tuesday post. “One who will support strict constitutionalist judges; and one who will fight for our values, not those of Washington, DC. Accordingly, I will be making an endorsement in the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate in the near future to ensure we defeat Jeanne Shaheen in 2020.”
