Corey Lewandowski, a senior advisor to President Donald Trump’s campaign, has tested positive for COVID-19, he confirmed to CNN on Thursday.
Lewandowski has been part of Trump’s legal effort to challenge the election results in several battleground states.
He traveled to Philadelphia last week to help file a series of lawsuits against city officials based on unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the state. Lewandowski said he believes he contracted the virus during his trip, according to reporting from The New York Times.
He attended a White House election night party last week, alongside other officials in Trump’s orbit who have since tested positive for coronavirus. That list includes chief of staff Mark Meadows, campaign adviser David Bossie, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and Brian Jack, the White House political director.
The Times reported on Wednesday that two still unnamed White House staffers had also tested positive for COVID-19, but it’s unknown whether they attended the November 3 gathering.
Lewandowski said he is feeling fine and plans to stay at home, CNN reported.
