nearvideo Lewandowski: the media, the American people behind the indictment
Democrats hype new surveys as a prosecution victory; reaction of Trump’s 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson.
MANCHESTER, N. H. – He flirted for almost six months, running for Senate in his home state of New Hampshire, but in the end Corey Lewandowski has decided to pass making a bid.
Lewandowski, President of the Trump in the 2016 campaign manager, and is a frequent cable-news-surrogate, who remains a close outside adviser to the President, took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that after much consideration he has “decided to abandon the campaign for the U.S. Senate.”

Taking aim at the popular two-term democratic incumbent sen. Jeanne Shaheen, the often combative Lewandowski wrote that while “the acquisition of a politician from Washington, the swamp is a tall order, I’m sure I would have won. My priorities are my family, and ensuring that @realDonaldTrump re-elected POTUS.”
The President praised Lewandowski’s potential Senate money, if he, instead of 2020-re-election-rally in Manchester, N. H., in August.
But some establishment Republicans gave Lewandowski the cold shoulder. Former sen Judd Gregg, who also served as Governor, made headlines in the summer by calling Lewandowski’s “a racket.”
In media interviews this fall, Lewandowski was all over the Board, whether it be in the direction of introduction of a Senate campaign. For the timing, two months ago, he said to Fox News and other news organizations that he was “under the illusion” that he had “to make a decision today or tomorrow. I think that time is on our side.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 BATTLE FOR THE SENATE
Lewandowski, a longtime New Hampshire works is a resident, as a consultant and lobbyist in the nation’s capital, has said repeatedly that he would be the best Republican to challenge Shaheen in the year 2020 due to his fundraising “abilities” because of his close relationship to the President.
Three Republicans have already declared their candidacy for the GOP Senate nomination, in hopes of next year against Shaheen, a former three-term Governor. You are retired army, Gen. Don Bolduc, former New Hampshire state house speaker Bill O’brien, and Bryant “Corky” Messner, a self-made millionaire lawyer. None of them come close to matching Shaheen’s fundraising haul. The democratic incumbent brought in $2.27 in July-September in the third quarter of fundraising, with about $4.3 million cash on hand.
The New Hampshire Democratic party took aim in three GOP candidates, bind to Lewandowski.
“Each of the Republicans running for the Senate from New Hampshire has stood proudly to take with Corey Lewandowski and Donald Trump in their efforts health care of tens of thousands of granite Stater and reverse Roe vs. Wade,” said party spokesman Josh Marcus-Blank.
The last two Senate elections in New Hampshire have been razor-thin Shaheen just barely defeated former GOP sen. Scott Brown in 2014 and then-democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte of only 1,017 votes in 2016.
In the year 2020, the national Republicans view New Hampshire, to defend one of the few places you can go may be able to take the Offensive, since they usually work, their 53-47 majority in the Senate.
But defeat Shaheen will not be easy, thanks to her popularity and her impressive campaign war chest.
