Lara Trump, US President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, worked behind the scenes as a producer for "Inside Edition" before joining her father-in-law's 2016 and 2020 campaigns.
The Times cites "three allies" who say the wife of Donald Trump's son Eric is considering a run in 2022 after Sen.
"She's very charismatic, she understands retail politics well and has a natural instinct for politics", Mercedes Schlapp, a Trump adviser, told the Times.
"The president gave her the responsibility of winning North Carolina in 2016 and in 2020 - she did it both times", the source said, calling her a "household name" and saying she is "well-known among the Republican Party".
She was listed as a senior consultant to Parscale during the 2020 election. "She worked really hard on the campaign and was very involved in a lot of decisions throughout". Mrs. Trump is said to be considering a Senate run to replace Richard Burr, who has said he will not seek re-election when his current term expires. She has the trifecta: "She can raise money, raise awareness of key issues, and raise attention to her race", Conway said.
The reports, in the New York Times and Politico, come as Donald Trump continues seeking to reverse his November 3 presidential election loss to Joe Biden through baseless fraud claims and personal outreach to state election authorities. His eldest daughter, Ivanka (right) has been tipped as the most likely to follow in her father's footsteps, having served as his adviser since 2017.
Other North Carolina Republicans eying the seat include Retiring Rep. Mark Walker, Former Gov. Among other contenders for what will be a hotly contested Senate nomination, the paper named Mark Meadows - a former hard-right congressman who is now White House chief of staff.
A North-Carolina based Democratic strategist told The New York Times that Lara Trump would face stiff competition in North Carolina. Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr have been widely discussed as potential candidates for offices from NY mayor to president.
