President Donald Trump on Thursday morning retweeted a pair of posts from his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski ahead of an evening rally in New Hampshire — where state Republicans fear Trump will promote a potential Senate run by his controversial ex-aide.

The first post shared a story by The Washington Times reporting that Lewandowski will accompany the president to the “Keep America Great Rally” in Manchester. “Can’t wait for ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ to come back to NH to deliver his message of America First!” Lewandowski wrote in the message.

The second post shared a story by the alt-right publication Breitbart News reporting the results of survey showing Lewandowski leading the field of Republican primary challengers looking to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.). POLITICO first reported on the poll, commissioned by Lewandowski confidante and Citizens United President David Bossie.

The president’s retweets will do little to calm the nerves of GOP officials and operatives in New Hampshire who are adamantly opposed to a Senate campaign by Lewandowski. New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, former New Hampshire Attorney General Tom Rath, former Sen. Judd Gregg and strategist Dave Carney have all voiced concerns about such a bid.
