I actually forgot this was even a thing.
Courtesy of TPM:
Several months after “seriously considering” a bid for Senate, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski announced on Tuesday that he would not challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) in 2020 after all.
But he wants you to know that he definitely would’ve beat her if he did.
“After much consideration I have decided to forgo a campaign for the US Senate,” Lewandowski tweeted. “While taking on a career politician from the Washington swamp is a tall order, I am certain I would have won.”
The conservative hardliner said his “priorities” are his family and working for Trump’s reelection in 2020, though he promised to endorse whichever Republican wins the primary to “ensure” Shaheen’s defeat.
Lewandowski’s potential run for Senate was unwelcome among New Hampshire Republicans, who believed the Trump loyalist to be too volatile to help the party win the seat.
“Corey is a political hack,” New Hampshire GOP strategist Dave Carney told Politico in August. “Political hacks make bad candidates generally.”
I was going to pile on but it is really hard to beat that political hack statement.
Yeah Lewandowski would have made a deeply flawed candidate who would have quickly gone down in flames.
Which of course is exactly the kind of asshole that Donald Trump is quick to support.

I actually kind of wish he would have stayed in the race so that we could watch yet another Trump disciple crash and burn in a spectacular fashion.
That never gets old.
