CONCORD – The co-chairman of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in New Hampshire says “absolutely nothing” has changed when it comes to the Granite State’s delegation.
State Rep. Fred Doucette of Salem spoke with NH1 News on Tuesday, one day after Trump national campaign chairman and New Hampshire resident Corey Lewandowski was fired from his position.
Asked if anything with the Trump delegation in New Hampshire will change due to Lewandowski’s departure, Doucette said “absolutely nothing. As it stands now Corey’s come out and said that he’s still going to be a delegate for Mr. Trump. He’s still going to be a chair of our delegation going into Cleveland. So we look forward to carrying the same message, the same purpose, and Corey’s our head.”
Lewandowki’s a pledged delegate for Trump and last month was voted in as chairman of the state’s delegation to the Republican convention in Cleveland in July.
Asked if he’s concerned that with Lewandowski out, will the New Hampshire team get the same access that it had before, Doucette said “absolutely not. We’re all in the same team. We all have the same goal. Getting Mr. Trump at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The riff perceived by the media, by many in the media, isn’t as bad as it’s perceived. We’re a team. We work well together. We’re going to stay on message, we’re going to stay on point, we’re going to get the job done for Mr. Trump.”
