Corey Lewandowski, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday but is feeling well, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Lewandowski, 47, confirmed in a text to CNBC on Thursday that he tested positive for Covid-19 a day earlier.
Asked if he was experiencing symptoms of the virus, Lewandowski told CNBC: “I feel great.”
Lewandowski has traveled to various states to promote the campaign’s legal challenges to the presidential election results, but has spent recent days in Philadelphia, where he believes he could have contracted the virus from any number of people.
He joins a growing list of individuals close to the President to have tested positive for the virus this week after attending campaign events before the presidential election.
David Bossie, one of the President’s political advisers, including Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and White House political affairs director Brian Jack all tested positive for the coronavirus this week.
Lewandowski was recently in Philadelphia, where the Trump campaign is mounting lawsuits to challenge ‘vote irregularities’ despite lack of evidence
He was reportedly also present at a news conference in the city on Saturday at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, alongside President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
