Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has joined the pro-Trump super PAC, “America First,” according to a statement released by the group Thursday.
Lewandowski will be the latest campaign veteran to sign on to help in the 2020 reelection of Trump and will serve as senior adviser and spokesman for America First. He also maintains his own D.C.-based consulting firm.
Other former Trump campaigners to join America First include former digital director Brad Parscale and spokeswoman Katrina Pierson. A third group, “Making America Great,” was founded by former campaign deputy manager David Bossie.
America First experienced a series of departures in its early period and took criticism from the White House for not giving Trump enough cover on health care. Since then, the group has picked up its spending, throwing millions into ads on repealing and replacing Obamacare and on the president’s trips abroad.
In total, there are three main groups backing Trump: America First, Bossie’s Making America Great, and the oldest, Great America Alliance.
Great America Alliance boasts the leadership of former New York City mayor and Trump campaigner Rudy Giuliani, as well as former Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich. It claims to have spent more than $30 million bolstering Trump’s campaign and White House message.
Making America Great has the backing of conservative mega-donors Rob and Rebekah Mercer, who reportedly donated $300,000 to support Kelli Ward (R) who is challenging Trump critic Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in the 2018 midterms.
Trump will need all the help he can get as challengers appear to be lining up to take him on already.
