Ivanka Trump won't challenge Rubio for Senate seat in 2022

Source: The Hill

Ivanka Trump will not challenge Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for his Senate seat in 2022, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Hill.

The New York Times first reported the development on Thursday, citing an unidentified source who told the newspaper that Trump was not considering a Senate bid, despite rumors that she would primary Rubio in the next election.

“Marco did speak with Ivanka a few weeks ago,” Nick Iacovella, a spokesman for Rubio, told the Times. “Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s reelection. They had a great talk.”


Rubio, who was first elected by the state back in 2010. will be running for his third term in the Senate next year.

1. Big surprise

She doesn't want to have to work. Even Republican Senators have to work, usually spending vast amounts of time raising money for their re-election campaigns. It's hard work, you know. (snark)

Princess Emptyhead has seen politics and government up close and she's smart enough to know she doesn't want to go there.

Her sister-in-law, Lara, however, is too stupid to realize this. If she runs in North Carolina, she'll be eviserated.

I hope she doesn't but we can't be complacent. Trump won this state twice.

3. Never ever trust anything that comes out of a drumpf mouth.

EVen if it's the truth of the moment, they change their minds on a turn of the dime, if they see any profit in there for themselves. Now maybe she's realized that she's totally not up to the task and really doesn't want that kind of work anyway, but if she sniffs any profit opportunities, watch out Marco.

27. It isn't over yet.

Trumps have a way of "skirting the truth" (most call it lying) and I don't believe a word any of them say. She'd cut Rubio's throat quicker than you can say 'Trump'. It's the perfect ruse for giving him false confidence.

ex-Military, Blue Dogs in States like Florida and S/N Carolina? I think they could mount successful campaigns.

Then again, every state could use a Stacey Abrams to get people to the polls.

11. Flipping that Senate seat is going to be a really difficult battle.

He's got nearly 100 percent name recognition, and is popular with the Cubans and Latinos. I've seen a few reporters say it's possible he wins Miami-Dade County, or even just comes within a few points of it.

13. Oh darn....and I was hoping for the bathing suit and talent portions of that competition.

She and Loeffler should just get their exploratory committee together for 2024. All the great minds, one Repub dream ticket. If any of the Trumps even win an election to dog catcher I may need to follow through on my repeated threats to leave the country.

16. I think Dems need to tune up their ideology for their Senate candidates

We tend to run candidates from business and former prosecutors and ex-military, and then rely on personal story and personality.

In my view we don't counter free-market trickle up small government incumbents very well. We need better messaging to serve the people instead of the corporations.

21. The Trumps are opportunistic grifters.

The only office they’d ever be interested in is the presidency. Being a senator or governor wouldn’t get them nearly the amount of attention that being president would.

23. Oh, the hard core already has a plan to return trump to power;

They say he'll run for a House seat and when he wins it, he'll be voted Speaker if the GOP takes back the House. Really. I've seen it.

22. Senatoring is Real Work

Trumps don’t work, they grift. None of them have ever held a wage-earning job in their life, other than businesses spawned from daddy.

No way she’ll suddenly become a servant of the people in elected office. Like Napoleon Dynamite said, “I don’t even have any good skills.” She has no skills. No nunchuck skills, no mustache.

24. Princess Sparkle Toes has been part of the Trump Org. Crime Syndicate for a long time.

She now knows that she will be fair game for investigations into her past actions, most of which are more than a bit shady, like her deal in Azerbaijan working with mobsters to build a luxury property that was never occupied although it was mostly finished. I seem to remember a convenient fire or some damage that made it uninhabitable. Lots of money laundering going through the Trump Org.
