- Trump campaign manager will do double duty at summer convention
- Corey Lewandowski had listed himself among Trump's 11 New Hampshire delegates
A New Hampshire resident, Lewandowski confirmed to CNN
Wednesday that he will maintain both roles at the convention. The New York Times first reported that he had listed himself among Trump's 11 New Hampshire delegates and alternates in a signed letter to the secretary of state.
Trump enjoys a comfortable lead in the GOP delegate race, but with a complicated road to a nominating majority and the potential for a contested convention ahead, Lewandowski could find himself on the frontlines of a bitter floor fight.
On Tuesday night, he took a prominent place beside the candidate despite the recent controversy surrounding his alleged manhandling of a Breitbart reporter
in a press scrum last week.
"Corey, good job, Corey," the billionaire said, thanking his "whole squad" of campaign aides following another series of primary victories, including winner-take-all Florida.
