Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump is said to considering a Senate race in her home state North Carolina in 2022, said a New York Times report. At least three colleagues of Trump are said to have spoken about the possibility.
Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina will be retiring at the end of the term and Lara is expected to run for the seat. However, the race is expected to be tight as Trump's margin of win in the state was considerably narrow this time. There is a chance that a Democrat might be chosen by the people of the state.
Lara Trump has the experience of working as a producer for Inside Edition, a TV news magazine. However, she quit her job in 2016 as she decided to actively work for the Donald Trump's election campaign.
