Lewandowski tweeted about the website in the midst of a chaotic House Judiciary Committee hearing in which he delivered a full-throated defense of Trump and railed against the myriad investigations into the president, his associates and his conduct.

“New website just launched to help a potential senate run,” Lewandowski tweeted, along with a link to the website StandWithCorey.com. “Sign up now!”

The tweet was Lewandowski’s latest hint that he’s nearing an announcement on a potential Senate bid in 2020. He has said repeatedly that he is seriously considering such a campaign and Trump has praised him as a potential candidate, though he has not endorsed him.

In fact, Lewandowski’s website, which so far is made up of a single page with photos of Lewandowski and Trump, features a quote from the president declaring that his former campaign manager “would be ‘fantastic.’ ”

If Lewandowski does enter the New Hampshire Senate race, he’ll still have to make it through a Republican primary before taking on Shaheen. And Democrats have already begun taking aim at the former Trump aide over his lobbyist ties in Washington. 

Still, a recent Emerson University poll showed Lewandowski with a wide lead over his potential Republican opponents. Among Republican primary voters in the Granite State, Lewandowski registered 23 percent support, while two of his would-be rivals, Don Bolduc and Bill O'Brien, scored 9 percent and 7 percent, respectively.
