Lewandowski is “Very, Very Certain” That Another Republican is About to Join the Messy NH GOP Senate Primary, Says That Trump’s Endorsement “Will be the Determining Factor of Who the Republican Nominee is”
Corey Lewandowski is back, and not only is he “very, very certain” that another Republican will join the “messy” NH GOP Senate primary, but he is also attacking Chuck Morse’s Q1 fundraising as “not enough to be competitive in the race.” During his interview with the Pulse of NH’s Jack Heath, Lewandowski singled out Morse for his abysmal fundraising, saying that “there are three quarters left in the race to go, and if you were to extrapolate to 750,000 times three,” it’s still “not enough to be competitive in the race.” Lewandowski also doubled down on his belief that “this field is not completed” and said outright that he is “very, very certain” another Republican is set to join the primary. Lewandowski also added that candidates will have to do everything they can to get Trump’s endorsement which “will be the determining factor of who the Republican nominee is.” Lewandowski was recently asked by Heath if he was “trying to get a top tier U.S. Senate Republican candidate in the primary” after reports that Lewandowski was hinting at the entrance of Wendy Long, former two-time failed Senate candidate from New York. Lewandowski has repeatedly made it clear that he doesn't “believe the field is completed yet” and reaffirmed that what the current candidates have raised is simply not enough to be competitive – or get Trump’s endorsement. Read the interview below and listen here. Jack Heath: And Corey, before I let you go, I know it's off topic a little bit, but you mentioned the midterms and the race as the president, I see the releases [...] But when should we expect, will, can we expect President Trump to be making an endorsement in that U.S. Senate primary soon? Or is it weeks away? Corey Lewandowski: I would say that Jack, that field has not been fully completed. I know the president is aware of that. I am very, very certain that at least one additional person getting into that race, $750,000 is a great haul, except it's a $20 million race. And so look, I respect how difficult it is to raise money because I've seen it. But there are three quarters left in the race to go, and if you were to extrapolate to 750,000 times three, it means you've raised you know, you know, two and a quarter, maybe through four. You've raised $3 million. It's not enough to be competitive in the race. And so Donald Trump's endorsement will be the determining factor of who the Republican nominee is for the United States Senate. But I am firmly convinced Jack this field is not completed.
