Washington, United States:
Lara, daughter-in-law of U.S. President Donald Trump, plans to lead the Senate in her home state of North Carolina in 2022, U.S. media reported Thursday.
Reports from the New York Times and Politico indicate that Donald Trump continued to demand the withdrawal of his losses in the November 3 presidential election through baseless fraud allegations and personal outreach to state election officials.
Lara Trump married the president’s second eldest son Eric, “telling his colleagues he was planning to run for the Senate in 2022,” three anonymous “associates” cited.
Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina has said he will not seek a meeting that year.
There are already crowds in the Republican fray to replace him, with Poltico reporting that other potential candidates include current Donald Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, as well as former Governor Pat McCorry and Lt. – outgoing governor Forest Forrest. .
North Carolina is historically Republican and voted for Donald Trump on Nov. 3 – but by a smaller margin than in 2016. This is increasingly seen as a possible swing state.
