“I will be with the president tomorrow on his visit to New Hampshire and I’m excited for him to come back and talk about his message of economic prosperity and national security,” Mr. Lewandowskisaid to The Hill.
The former campaign manager’s statement comes after GOP sources said in early August Mr. Lewandowski’s name was brought up this week in a Republican National Committee meeting in Charlotte, N.C., to take on Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who’s looking to be elected for a third term.
However he downplayed the idea of announcing his candidacy at Thursday’s rally saying the primary is a long ways away and “there’s a lot of time to make decisions about running.”
“Having had the opportunity to serve next to him in several capacities, I’ll be prepared for any comments he makes,” he said.
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.
