In disappointing news, a rumored run for the U.S. Senate by Lara Trump will not happen.
Business Insider reports:
Lara Trump announced Saturday evening she would not be running for Senate in 2022, knocking down months of rumors and speculation while leaving open the possibility for a future bid.
“I am saying no for now, not no forever,” the North Carolina native told an audience at the North Carolina GOP state convention.
The daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump cited her two young children as the main reasons she wouldn’t run. She added that one is just a year old and the other is 3.
“When you do something, you give 100%. That is the only way to operate,” she said. “At the right time, I would absolutely love to come back and consider running for something here in my home state because I love it dearly.”
President Trump followed his daughter in law’s announcement with one of his own, endorsing Congressman Ted Bud for the Senate seat.
Lara Trump is an articulate voice for Trump’s agenda and it’s a disappointment not to have her in the Senate, where an inconsistent GOP cohort needs periodic spine stiffening. We can only hope that she won’t decline to enter politics the next time an opportunity rolls around.
