Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former deputy campaign manager David Bossie will appear at a Palm Beach Republican Club reception next week to promote their book on the 2016 race.
Tickets are $105 for club members and $115 for guests for the Tuesday event at the Colony Hotel, which begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m., a lecture at 6:15 p.m. and a book-signing afterward.
Lewandowski and Bossie co-authored Let Trump Be Trump: The Inside Story Of His Rise To The Presidency.
Lewandowski was Trump’s first campaign manager and guided the first-time candidate past 16 rivals to win the Republican nomination. He has retained good relations with Trump despite being fired in June 2016 after a power struggle with Palm Beach Gardens resident Paul Manafort, who had come on two months earlier with the title of campaign chairman.
Lewandowski made headlines in March 2016 when Jupiter police found probable cause to charge him with misdemeanor battery for grabbing reporter Michelle Fields’ arm at a Trump campaign event at Trump National Golf Club. Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg decided not to prosecute Lewandowski, determining the evidence was not strong enough to convict him.
Bossie, longtime president of the conservative nonprofit Citizens United, took a leave of absence from that post in September 2016 to be Trump’s deputy campaign manager through the general election.
Citizens United won a landmark 2010 Supreme Court decision allowing corporations and labor unions to make unlimited expenditures on “electioneering communications.” The case arose after a Citizens United documentary critical of Hillary Clinton was deemed a violation of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law’s restrictions on corporate elections activity. The court’s 5-4 ruling held that the documentary was political speech protected by the First Amendment.
