President Donald Trump’s family just confirmed the news. Someone is seriously looking at running for office in a major swing state.
“Still considering a run for Senate in North Carolina, your home state?” asked Fox News’ Sean Hannity to Lara Trump. “Yes, I am still considering it, absolutely,” she answered.
Lara is the wife of President Trump’s oldest son, Eric, and has been an outspoken, loyal supporter of her father-in-law throughout his presidency. Now, she is looking to make waves herself.
The Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina will be a battle, especially if Lara jumps in. Former Rep. Mark Walker (R) is currently the favored candidate.
But this could all be upset. This is probably why Lara is taking her time — there is no rush to announce yet and she wants to gauge her support amongst the GOP faithful in the Tar Heel State.
The coming retirement of Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) has created an opening in 2022 and all eyes will be on North Carolina to see who emerges from this primary and into the general election.
