Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is joining Vice President Mike Pence’s political action committee.
“Proud to be joining the Great America PAC. @realDonaldTrump and @MikePenceVP continue to fulfill the Campaign Promises they made to Make America Great Again,” Lewandowski tweeted Monday after Fox News first reported the move.

Lewandowski stepped down from the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action to join the Great America Committee, where he will be positioned to work on the upcoming midterm elections as well as Trump’s reelection campaign in 2020.
Lewandowski’s new role will also involve traveling with Pence, who has appeared at several Republican events in recent months while pushing Trump to back GOP candidates in crucial contests, according to the New York Times.
The Vice President has already been making moves to galvanize the Republican party ahead of the midterm election, the Times reported.

Lewandowski has maintained in close contact with Trump, despite being fired before the 2016 presidential elections.
He resigned from his role as a CNN commentator after five months, and joined the America First Action as a senior adviser and spokesperson in August 2017.
