Trump's daughter-in-law considering Senate run, says US media

Trump's daughter-in-law considering Senate run, says US media

President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump is considering running for Senate in the North Carolina race in 2022, according to the New York Times.

She is not the only member of Trump's immediate family who appears to have mulled a run for office.

Trump, who is married to Trump Organization executive vice president Eric Trump, was born in Wilmington, N.C. However, Meadows stated he has no intentions to run although he loves the people of North Carolina.

At the end of September, US President Donald Trump denied information that appeared in the press that during the 2016 election campaign he discussed with advisers the possibility of nominating his daughter Ivanka for the post of vice president.

She is a native of North Carolina and graduated from North Carolina State University but now lives with Eric and her two children in Westchester, New York.

Mark Walker, a Trump ally who represents North Carolina's 6th District, has said he is considering a run - and the president has suggested he'd support him by encouraging the bid. "It would be formidable", said Kellyanne Conway, a former White House official and Trump campaign director in 2016.

She was listed as a senior consultant to Parscale during the 2020 election. If she will proceed with her plans, Trump will definitely be supporting her. The margins there have been narrowing over the years as North Carolina has emerged as a battleground state.

The race is expected to attract many prominent politicians in the primary, including Rep. Mark Walker (R-North Carolina), White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, former Gov. Pat McCrory (R), North Carolina Speaker Tim Moore and Dan Forest, the former Republican nominee for governor who lost in 2017.

Until now, Lara herself is yet to verify these caims, but many political experts are already expecting that at least one of Trump's close relatives will follow in his footsteps.
