Former Trump campaign manager and confidant Corey Lewandowski is joining Vice President Mike Pence’s political action committee to focus on this year’s consequential midterm election, Lewandowski announced on Twitter Monday.

Why it matters: His return to Trumpworld was first reported by Fox News, which said that Lewandowski’s move “will enable him to travel with the VP and puts him firmly back in the president’s 2020 reelection orbit.” Meanwhile, Pence has been playing a central role in the White House's midterm strategy amid some internal friction with administration aides and Trump loyalists, per a new report from The New York Times.
