Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Thursday described former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as “a star” who could “absolutely” win a U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire.

McDaniel told Fox News she does not know whether the president’s combative former aide will enter the state’s Republican primary hoping to oust Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, but remarked that “there’s a lot of buzz around” his prospective bid.

“Obviously, Corey is a star,” McDaniel said. “He’s going to do really well if he debates any Democrat, Shaheen. So, we’ll see what he decides.”

Pressed on whether Lewandowski could defeat Shaheen, a second-term senator and former governor, McDaniel replied: “Oh, absolutely.”
