A liberal super PAC, American Bridge, labeled Lewandowski "a lobbyist accused of selling access to the White House" in a digital ad that began running Wednesday as well as a "foreign agent whose clients included a state owned Venezuelan oil conglomerate."

The 40-second ad will run through the weekend on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, according to a statement provided to The Hill by American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson.

“Corey Lewandowski is a shady grifter who gives snake oil salesmen a bad name,” Hudson said. “If Lewandowski is too unethical to work in the Trump White House, he’s certainly too crooked to represent New Hampshire in the Senate."

Lewandowski told Fox News on Wednesday that he is "very, very close" to announcing a Senate bid.
