NYT Report Lara Trump considering run at NC senate seat in 2022

A person familiar with President Trump's daughter-in-law's plans, who has discussed them directly with her, told Fox News Friday that she is "interested and exploring" whether she will run.

The Times cites "three allies" who say the wife of Donald Trump's son Eric is considering a run in 2022 after Sen. Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp, who traveled with Lara Trump for campaign appearances, tells the Times that the 38-year-old former TV producer is "very charismatic, she understands retail politics well, and has a natural instinct for politics".

She is a native of North Carolina and graduated from North Carolina State University but now lives with Eric and her two children in Westchester, New York.

She was listed as a senior consultant to Parscale during the 2020 election.

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. Trump, who is married to Trump Organization executive vice president Eric Trump, was born in Wilmington, N.C. 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.

It also remains unclear how warmly North Carolina would embrace Lara Trump, given the Democratic shift seen in November's election.

Lara Trump described the president's comments as someone 'having fun at a Trump rally, ' The New York Times reported.

A loyal surrogate for her father-in-law, Lara Trump allegedly offered hush money to Omarosa Manigault-Newman, after the former Apprentice star left the White House early in Trump's term.
