Will Lara Trump Be the Next Trump on a Ballot?

WASHINGTON — Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law who emerged during the 2020 presidential campaign as a defender of President Trump’s basest political instincts, is now eyeing a political future of her own in her home state of North Carolina.

As Mr. Trump attempts to subvert the election to remain in power, Ms. Trump, three allies said, has been telling associates she is considering a run for Senate in 2022, in what is expected to be a competitive race for the first open Senate seat in a very swingy swing state in a generation. Senator Richard Burr, an unobtrusive Republican legislator who was thrust into the spotlight as chairman of a committee investigating the president’s ties to Russia, has said he will retire at the end of his term. Despite expanded turnout in rural areas, Mr. Trump won North Carolina by a smaller margin than he did four years ago, just 1.3 percentage points, a sign that overall the state is trending blue and that the race for the Senate seat will be tightly contested by both parties in the first post-Donald Trump election.

But not, perhaps, an entirely post-Trump election, if Ms. Trump proceeds.

Ms. Trump, 38, a former personal trainer and television producer for Inside Edition, wed Eric Trump at the family’s Mar-a-Lago estate in 2014 and worked as a senior adviser on the 2020 Trump campaign. Now, the daughter-in-law whom Mr. Trump had often joked to donors that he “couldn’t pick out of a lineup” is floating herself as the first test of the enduring power of the Trump name.

1. We can always hope that she will be subject to indictment and imprisonment

like the rest of the Don Trumpleone family.

2. We'll see. It looks to me like her husband is under scrutiny.

Eric Trump Finally Interviewed in N.Y. Fraud Inquiry

I've speculated that Eric is in hotter water than any other Trump offspring. But it's just speculation. That wouldn't necessarily prevent Lara from making her move, but it would complicate matters.

4. Sadly for the other Trumps by birth or marriage,

the magic only accrues to The Donald. None of kids better plan on outshining dear old Dad either lest he knock them down a few pegs.

5. Every story about Trump's family makes me less sympathetic to the Romanovs.

I'm not saying what happened to them was right, but I understand.

8. NC has a fine tradition of carpetbagger politicians

especially ones married to somebody famous. Both she and Elizabeth Dole shook the dust of NC off their shoes as soon as they got out of college, returning as carpetbaggers.

Then again, Elizabeth Dole was only a one termer.

A lot is likely to happen over the next 2 years and Lara's easy coast into office on the tail end of her FIL's tie might not be that easy.
