Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, said Tuesday "it's fair" to say that he may not seek a seat to represent New Hampshire in the U.S. Senate in favor of working toward his former boss' re-election.
"As much as I think I would be a great fighter for the people of New Hampshire, and one U.S. senator can make a difference, it is my priority to make sure the president of the United States is reelected," Lewandowski told the "New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath" radio show.
However, after the news broke about the comments he'd made on the show Tuesday, Lewandowski told The New Hampshire Union Leader that what he'd said earlier on the Heath program shouldn't be interpreted that he is reconsidering a race.
"I’m not reconsidering anything," he told The Union Leader. "I have said before and continue to say I am waiting for the Q3 fundraising numbers to be posted. I am speaking with my family and voters of New Hampshire before I make any final decisions."
However, after Heath had asked Lewandowski if it was "fair" that he was putting his Senate hopes on pause while he examined how much help Trump needed from him, he replied that it "is fair."
Greg Moore, who replaced Lewandowski as the New Hampshire state director for Americans for Prosperity, after he moved on to the group's national leadership, told the Union Leader he hadn't heard anything about Lewandowski rethinking the Senate race.
"One thing is for sure," he added. "If the President prefers he take one position or the other, that is run for Senate or play a big role in defending against impeachment, I believe that this will weigh heavily in Corey's thinking."
Talk has been circulating for some time that Lewandowski would challenge long-time Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen for her seat.
