Lara Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, is considering a Senate run in 2022, according to a report.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Lara, who is married to Trump’s second eldest child Eric, has told associates that she is mulling for the Senate in North Carolina in the mid-term elections in 2022.

Lara Trump grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina, and the state’s Senate seat will be available when Republican Sen. Richard Burr retires at the end of his term.

President Trump — who continues falsely to claim that he won the election — is projected to have won North Carolina by over a percentage point in 2020, but by a smaller margin than in 2016, and a mid-term senate race would likely be closely run, the Times reported.

Lara Trump served as a high-profile campaign adviser to both her father-in-law’s presidential runs in 2016 and 2020, regularly appearing on conservative-leaning talk shows on Fox News and focusing efforts on a campaign to bring out women voters called “Women for Trump.”

She is not the only member of Trump’s immediate family who appears to have mulled a run for office. Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., posted a photo of a Don Jr. 2024 flag on Instagram in October, which he said would make “the lib [sic] heads explode.” In September Brad Parscale, Trump’s former campaign manager, said: “The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades.”

Lara married Eric Trump in 2014, and gained prominence in 2016 when she campaigned for her father-in-law’s presidential run. Her efforts in 2016, as in Trump’s second run in 2020, targeted women voters as part of a campaign called “Women for Trump.” Those efforts in 2016 were especially focused on North Carolina.

She attracted controversy in September after appearing campaigning with Laura Loomer, a well-known far-right activist who was running as a GOP nominee for Congress in Florida.

She also claimed in an interview with Fox News last year that German chancellor Angela Merkel’s move in 2015 to allow hundreds of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees to settle in the country “led to the downfall of Germany.”
