The former trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski says that the media is wrong, every day about President Trump, which is the reason why he is a big profit in the year 2020.

MANCHESTER, N. H. – President Trump has a message for New Hampshire Republicans prior to his visit on Thursday: “Corey is a great man. If he ran and won, he would be a great senator.”

The Corey, the President says this is Corey Lewandowski, the Trump for President made campaign from its start in the year 2015 through the 2016 primaries and who remains a close outside adviser to the President. The New Hampshire resident and the Washington, DC, consultant, and lobbyist-generated buzz a few weeks ago, when he said he was seriously a 2020 run for the U.S. Senate in his home state.

LEWANDOWSKI CITES CLOSE TIES WITH TRUMP, ‘FUND-RAISING SKILLS”, AS HE MULLS SENATE BID

“I think he would be fantastic. He has great energy. He is great on television. He is a really good guy,” Trump said in his interview on “New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath,” a popular center-right talk radio program in the Granite State.

Lewandowski argued last week in an interview with Fox News that his ability to Fundraising — thanks to his close relationship to President Trump –, would be to supply the most formidable Republicans to face off next year against two-term democratic sen. Jeanne Shaheen, if he.

“If I decide to be in this race, I think you will see my fundraising skills to bear very quickly,” Lewandowski highlighted.

In an interview Thursday, Trump said: “I have not heard that he is still running. I know he is considering it. If he ran, I think he’s No. 1. I think it would be hard to beat in New Hampshire.”

The President of the radio interview came hours before he’s back to New Hampshire, his first campaign event in the state since the eve of the election in 2016. Trump nearly the decisive battle field, lost to Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election less than 3000 votes.

Energizing its base-the voters job No. 1 for Trump, the stop during his New Hampshire. But what is more interesting is what he says to Lewandowski, with the President at the rally at Southern New Hampshire University Arena in Manchester, the state’s largest venue.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 SENATE RACE

“I would expect that the President would say, he has no greater ally than Corey Lewandowski, because that’s not true, and that he would be happy with Corey to run for the Senate,” said David Bossie, the longtime President and Chairman of the conservative advocacy group citizens United and a Fox News contributor.

Bossie, a close outside adviser to the President, served as the Deputy campaign Manager of trump in 2016 White house bid, is also in the vicinity with Lewandowski.

“Obviously an endorsement by the President, if he (Lewandowski) was in the race, which would, according to him, in my opinion, unbeatable in the primary,” he told Fox News.

Bossie released indicating that a survey on Tuesday that Lewandowski would be declared the front-runner in the race over the other three or probable Republican candidate – if he were to run – and that the President of the support would only strengthen his frontrunner status. Trump, whose approval rating is under water in the state – continue to be very popular with the majority of Granite State Republicans. His approval rate was 82 percent, among Republicans in a University of New Hampshire poll released this week.

Lewandowski told Fox News last week, ” if I run, I think that someone else could be the trump-man in New Hampshire.”

And Bossie illuminated, that “we believe that Lewandowski is the candidacy of Jeanne Shaheen fits for the election to the Bundestag, and it makes the democratic Senate Committee commit to the race and money do not spend, if it think necessarily, you would have to.”

“The combination of the President trump to the top of the ticket with a Lewandowski candidacy is the opposite of what (GOP incumbent sen.), Kelly Ayotte in 2016, they distanced himself from then-candidate, Trump and lost and not had the enthusiasm of the Republican party base, and lost very nearly married,” said Bossie. “It really gives Republicans a Chance to pick up a seat in New Hampshire and make it very competitive for the President.”

But some Granite State Republicans do not see it this way.

Former sen Judd Gregg, who also served as Governor – in the headlines a week by calling Lewandowski’s “a racket.”

“He is a part of Trump’s cadre of thugs. If he were to run and would be the nominees, it’s a scandal,” he told TV station WMUR.

Lewandowski returned fire, blasting Gregg as a part of a group of “career politicians” damaged the country and fueled Trump in the White house the victory.

But Lewandowski, like Trump, has a well-known reputation as a very controversial and polarizing figure.

Longtime New Hampshire-based Republican consultant David Carney argues that Lewandowski Senate run, is “a terrible idea.”

Carney — a veteran of numerous presidential, Senate, and gubernatorial campaigns — argues that “Corey is a political hack. I’m a political hack. Believe me, political hacks terrible candidate.”

“He has nothing to offer than his political activism. This is not a unique feature. People who hate politics. It is a terrible idea. The President hurt the re-election in New Hampshire, when we are not saddled with Corey, because he put everything on the table. He is riding the President’s coattails,” he said.

The last two Senate elections in New Hampshire have been razor-thin – with Shaheen just defeat former GOP sen. Scott Brown in 2014 and then-democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan defeat 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, a popular former Governor – will not be easy, as you already built a formidable campaign war chest before next year’s election.

Carney claimed that, “Corey is bringing a single new voters who are not already voting for the President, and it is not to believe that someone could be the ego, so big that you think that somehow you are going to turn up Trump voters better than Donald Trump. No one is to do. It is not an examination. The President is on the top of the ticket.”

And he and other GOP strategists say, a Lewandowski candidacy could complicate the thing up and down the vote, including for the popular Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, who is running next year for a third term of two years, the steering of the state.

But another longtime Republican consultant in New Hampshire is not in agreement.

Mike Biundo, a top adviser to former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania in 2012, and Sen. Rand Paul, and then-Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the primaries in 2016, tweeted that Lewandowski “changed the dynamics, attention and energy to this Senate race.”

Biundo–, joined the Trump campaign for the 2016 election to the Bundestag-said, “I’ve known him for over 20 years, I think he would be all, if he ran, he would understand how important the sport, and would be able to raise the significant national money.”

A day after Bossie, his poll published, the campaign of the Republican candidate and retired army Brigadier Gen. Don Bolduc has released his own internal poll, which is tied in front of Lewandowski and Bolduc. The Bolduc team, they exchanged their numbers and with the trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senate Committee.

If Lewandowski runs, he expressed the hope that he would clear the primary field.

“What I would prefer,” he said, “is there a single candidate who has the opportunity to have a longer campaign to focus directly on the Bundestag election….for the good goal of defeating Jeanne Shaheen.”

But neither Bolduc or former government-house of representatives speaker Bill O’brien, the other declared Republican candidate in the race, say they have no intention of stopping.

“No. It is my opinion will not change a bit,” Bolduc told Fox News on Monday. “I don’t want to get out of the race.”
