Lewandowski discussed the move with Trump before accepting the offer and is taking the job with the president’s blessing, these sources say.
By hiring such a high-profile Trump adviser, Pence is also sending a signal that there’s no daylight between him and his boss, despite some media chatter that the PAC could help further his own ambitions if Trump winds up not running again. The Great America Committee is the first such political arm created by a sitting vice president, but can only be used to donate to other campaigns and not to back any future Pence effort.
An official announcement is expected soon. Lewandowski has been traveling with Pence recently as they discussed the potential job.
