Fredericks on CNN to Don Lemon and Joe Madison on Roy Moore: “Let the voters of Alabama decide – you think they’re stupid. I don’t.”
Like Steve Bannon at the Breitbart office, Lewandowski stays upstairs when he’s in town. The lower floors house a lobbying firm and sometimes a radio show.
“You could call this the Turnberry embassy,” said John Fredericks, a friend of Lewandowski’s who sometimes broadcasts his syndicated radio show, “The John Fredericks Show,” out of the dining room and allowed a POLITICO reporter to join him there.
Pressed on that description, he corrected himself.
“Nobody knows what Turnberry is, so I would call it the Lewandowski Embassy,” Fredericks said. “On the air, I call it the Corey Lewandowski galactic headquarters.”
The clearest evidence linking Lewandowski to Turnberry, though, may be the row house. Asked whether the house was Corey’s personal office or Turnberry’s offices, Fredericks said there wasn’t a distinction.
“Turnberry is Corey’s public affairs company,” Fredericks said. “They’re one and the same.”
The house, built in 1900, is owned by the Citizens United Foundation, according to Washington, D.C., property records. It’s not clear whether Lewandowski, Turnberry or another entity rents the house or whether Lewandowski is allowed to use it for free.
Lewandowski worked with David Bossie, Citizens United’s president, on “Let Trump Be Trump: The Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency,” a book due out next month. Bossie did not respond to requests for comment.
Lewandowski “does TV and radio interviews” in the house, said one person who knows Lewandowski and has been to the row house. “He lets friends of his use it. It is pretty open-door.”
One of those friends, Fredericks, said Lewandowski will sometimes “just come downstairs and pop on” his radio show.
The house also provides nods to Lewandowski’s new influence in Washington, a city where few had heard of him before he took the helm of Trump’s campaign in 2015.

ON CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, Political Commentators and syndicated Radio talk host John Fredericks and SirusXM Host of the “The Joe Madison Show” Joe Madison discusses the breaking news allegations surrounding Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore.
John Fredericks, a pro-Trump radio host who advocated for bringing the president to Virginia, said Trump’s absence left his supporters unenthused. A presidential rally, he said, wouldn’t have fired up the Trump opponents any more than they already were.
“Ralph Northam ran on one message: Trump sucks,” Fredericks said. “Many of us didn’t think that was enough in a governor’s race. But it proved to be the message that carried the day.”
Disclaimer: My legendary, world renowned and highly coveted political predictions – at 97 percent since 2012 – are based on the following not so scientific criteria: total hearsay, unconfirmed rumors, conspiracy theories, pure innuendo, personal insight, Trump White House leakers, DPV moles, Ben Tribbett, RINO’s, Bernie Sanders’ supporters, my high-voltage tin foil hat wired directly into the Tea Party mother ship (aluminum comes from Chi-Coms), William at the dry cleaners, Wayne from the Virginia Zoo, my postman, my radio show callers, the opposite of all CNU rigged polls, pure instinct…and my secret sauce.
It all adds up to a nearly flawless track record! I’m right a whopping 97 percent of the time.
Finally, my predictions do not necessarily reflect my endorsements or my preference as a voter. It’s just my cold, hard analysis.
Virginia Governor- Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory
Ed Gillespie over Ralph Northam
There is no way the Republicans should win the Virginia governorship in 2017. Every analytic trend in the last 30 years of Virginia politics screams for a landslide Democratic victory.
But Ralph Northam has snatched defeat from the jaws of sure victory.
While the Gillespie campaign is a conglomeration of website white papers and policy-wonk-a-mania, Northam’s campaign is so bad it makes Creigh Deeds look like JFK.
Somehow, Northam has failed to capitalize on Va. Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s popularity, and instead has lost his entire narrative to Gillespie in the last 10 days of the campaign. As popular as McAuliffe is in Virginia, it is inconceivable that Northam didn’t wrap himself around the Governor’s record and run as a McAuliffe second term.
In addition, Northam flip flopped on sanctuary cities four times in four days with four different positions. He also lied about his campaign’s coordination on the Latino Victory Fund’s despicable pickup truck ad. Candidates who lie to their constituents a week before an election don’t fare very well.
Consultants have turned a really good man into Virginia’s Manchurian candidate. The first Democrat that Northam ever voted for was Ralph Northam. Now, Ralph Northam the state senator would not vote for Ralph Northam, candidate for governor.
Virginia Lt. Governor – Fairfax makes Henry Howell look like Barry Goldwater
Jill Vogel over Justin Fairfax
Wow. Jill Vogel is the face and embodiment of the new Republican Party in Virginia. She will lead the GOP ticket in raw votes, and is going to be Virginia’s 2021 governor regardless of the Gillespie-Northam outcome. This woman has run a great campaign and has become the heroine of Trump’s Virginia voters. She disagrees with President Trump on certain policies, but does it in a graceful way while embracing President Trump, his supporters, and his agenda. Her level of authenticity is refreshing and motivating.
Democrat Justin Fairfax seems to be running on Democratic Socialist Workers Party platform. He’d make Gus Hall proud. His positions are so radical he makes Howlin’ Henry Howell look like Barry Goldwater.
Extremists don’t win in Virginia. See Cuccinelli and Howell. Vogel romps.
Virginia Attorney General – Adams is closing like a bat out of hell
John Adams over Mark Herring
One month ago I wrote John Adams off as political road-kill. Mark Herring had run a brilliant centrist campaign, and was poised for a comfortable re-election effort.
Then Northam started to implode, Adams’ television and radio ads began to resonate, and Herring decided to play four corners Dean Smith stall ball. The Republican Attorney General Association (RAGA) just gave Adams $2.2 million in the last week of the campaign – as a challenger. That’s a game changer.
Adams is going to win this race.
First, he had zero chance of defeating Rob Bell in a convention. Then State Committeeman Ron Hedlund changed his vote, and we had a primary.
Second, Adams had about a 20 percent chance of beating Bell in a primary. Then Bell drops out, and he’s the nominee.
Third, Adams had virtually no chance to defeat Herring. Then the RAGA – who has a policy of not giving money to challengers running against incumbents – changes their longstanding game plan and gives several million dollars to Adams, revitalizing his campaign.
Fourth, Ralph Northam goes belly up in the last week, the racist LVF ad runs and Republicans get pissed for being called racist and now all hell breaks loose. If you wrote a script on this, it would probably be rejected by Hollywood as too bizarre. Adams wins.
He should buy a Powerball ticket!
I’ll be on CNN Monday night with Don Lemon to make these same predictions on national TV!
HOUSE OF DELEGATES PREDICTIONS COMING MONDAY NIGHT!
GUEST CONTRIBUTOR JOHN FREDERICKS
John Fredericks is a CNN contributor and a Salem Radio Network syndicated morning radio talk show host heard in Washington D.C., Virginia, Coastal Carolina and Maryland. Fredericks show can be heard weekdays 6-10 a.m. on Salem’s AM 1260 The Answer in D.C. and NOVA, WNTW AM 820; 97.7 FM NEWS-TALK in Richmond, WHKT AM 1650; 92.5 FM News-Talk in Hampton Roads, WBRG SuperTalk AM 1050 and 105.1 FM in Lynchburg and Roanoke.
A decision by Carly Fiorina, the former GOP presidential hopeful, not to run for U.S. Senate from Virginia next year leaves Corey Stewart, the bombastic Prince William supervisor, as the sole declared candidate for the GOP nomination.
Stewart, who came close to winning the party nomination for governor this year after running on a platform dedicated to protecting Confederate statues, said Fiorina’s absence from the Senate race clears the way for him to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine (D).
Several political observers agreed.
Upon hearing of Fiorina’s announcement, Tom Davis, a former Republican congressman from northern Virginia who is known as a moderate, said: “That makes Corey the undisputed frontrunner at this point. That wraps it up.”
“I do think he’ll be tough to beat in a primary or a convention,” Davis added. “The Republican Party has moved from the country club to the country.”
John Fredericks, host of a conservative radio show and co-chair of Trump’s Virginia campaign after Stewart was dismissed from that role, called Stewart the “prohibitive favorite” barring a “political earthquake.”
Other potential hopefuls may be hesitant to “go through the Corey Stewart buzz saw and take on a somewhat popular incumbent,” Fredericks said.
The general election, however, may turn on whether Republicans can beat Democrats in statewide elections this year. All five of the statewide offices are currently held by Democrats. If Ed Gillespie can reverse the trend and win the governor’s race, more Republicans may enter next year’s race for Senate.
Kaine downplayed Fiorina’s decision.
“Republicans may still have a primary – and it would be competitive – so we will let that play out,” campaign spokesman Ian Sams said in a statement.
Kaine, a popular former governor and Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate in 2016, is seeking a second term in the Senate. A February poll found him with a double-digit lead over potential Republican challengers, but that was before Stewart declared his candidacy.
