Corey Lewandowski told a local radio host “it’s fair” to say he is reconsidering a Senate run to defend President Trump from impeachment and help him get reelected, Politico reports.
“President Trump retweeted a pair of posts from his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski ahead of an evening rally in New Hampshire — where state Republicans fear Trump will promote a potential Senate run by his divisive ex-aide,” Politico reports.
Corey Lewandowski is considering a 2020 run for a U.S. Senate seat in New Hampshire now held by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Reuters reports.
“Lewandowski ran Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 for a time and has remained close to Trump throughout the president’s first years in office.”
“Retired Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc (R) announced Monday that he would run for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire against Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen, setting up what may be one of the marquee congressional races of 2020,” CBS News reports.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) will run for a third term rather than challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D) in 2020, WMUR reports.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) “has told other key Republicans within the past several days that he intends to seek a third term as governor and does not intend to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020,” WMUR reports.
However, Sununu insists he hasn’t yet made a decision.
A new Franklin Pierce University-Boston Herald poll in New Hampshire shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tied at 44% each.
The U.S. Senate race is also dead even, with Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) facing a tough challenge from Gov. Maggie Hassan (D).
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) “is positioning herself as a Party of One,” the Washington Post reports.
“She has deliberately broken with Senate Republicans – most notably, by publicly calling out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for insisting on defunding Planned Parenthood in the budget bill and by announcing her support for President Obama’s clean power plan. Her voting record in recent years has drifted further towards the center, much to the frustration of influential conservative outside groups.”
A new Public Policy Polling survey in New Hampshire finds Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) has the slight advantage over Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 44% to 43%.
A new WMUR poll in New Hampshire finds Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) leading Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) in the U.S. Senate race, 45% to 43%.
New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) announced she will challenge Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) for the U.S. Senate next year.
A new WMUR poll in New Hampshire finds Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) with a small edge over potential challenger Gov. Maggie Hassan (D), 45% to 43%.
New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) still hasn’t decided whether she’ll run for Senate, National Journal reports.
“But that hasn’t stopped New Hampshire Republicans from already spending over a million early dollars against” her. That’s because the “biggest boost Republicans could give” Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R) “reelection campaign at this point would be to either damage the popular Hassan ahead of her campaign or maybe even dissuade her from running at all.”
A new University of New Hampshire poll finds Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) edging Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) in a possible U.S. Senate race, 45% to 43%.
“New Hampshire Republicans have begun a pre-emptive strike this month against the strongest prospective challenger to Sen. Kelly Ayotte, targeting Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan months before she’s even set to decide whether she’ll enter the race,” National Journal reports.
“The early and aggressive campaign against Hassan demonstrates how seriously they take her as a challenger. Republicans already have filed a legal request to reveal her out-of-state travel and even have gotten prospective presidential candidates to criticize her stewardship of the state. This is unusual because Hassan has yet to determine whether she’ll run for Senate at alland won’t be deciding until the summer.”
A new New England College Polling Institute poll in New Hampshire finds Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has a small lead over Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) in a possible U.S. Senate match up for 2016, 48% to 43%.
“The poll gives an early indication of what many would expect from a match-up of these two major players on the New Hampshire political scene — it would be a close, hard-fought contest.”
Former Sen Scott Brown (R), who lost his bid to unseat Sen. Jean Shaheen (D-NH), is rejoining Fox News as a contributor, the Boston Herald reports.
“Brown’s decision to rejoin the cable news station is no surprise. The former senator left his Fox News gig and his job with the Boston law firm Nixon Peabody to campaign in New Hampshire, so he does need a job… The gig also keeps him in the public eye and on the radar should he decide that his political career isn’t over.”
Defeated New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown (R) “may have changed states between 2012 and 2014, but he didn’t change his concession speech all that much… Brown’s roughly six-minute speech on Tuesday night was not entirely identical to his more than 14-minute concession in 2012. ABC News watched both concessions and found some uncanny similarities.”
