Ivanka Trump Decides Against Challenging Marco Rubio for US Senate
In the speculation that in the coming 2022 midterm election year, one or more members of the family of former President Donald Trump will mount primary challenges against incumbent Republicans, at least one Trump has reportedly ruled out doing so.
The New York Times suggested that in the 2022 Florida GOP Senate primary, Ivanka Trump would not run against Sen. Marco Rubio (R). After her father’s presidential term ended, Ivanka, her husband, Jared Kushner, and their family permanently moved to Florida. After the move, reports have swirled that Ivanka Trump, probably challenging Rubio for Senate, will seek statewide office.

A Rubio spokesman told the Times that Ivanka is supporting the re-election of the senator in 2022.
“Marco did speak with Ivanka a few weeks ago,” the spokesperson said. “Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s re-election. They had a great talk.”
The Times also confirmed that an unnamed source close to Trump said running for Senate was not a strategy that she had ever considered seriously. The source said she had been asked by Rubio’s office to refrain from publicly announcing that she would not run for Senate until April, when they planned to join them for a case.
The Rubio spokesman told the Times that their office had a conversation with Ivanka Trump about hosting an event to draw attention to the efforts of Rubio to increase the child tax credit, a program developed jointly by him and Trump.
Ivanka Trump called Rubio a “good personal friend and I know he will continue to drive meaningful progress on issues we both care deeply about.” in a tweet, and I know that he will continue to make significant progress on issues that we both care deeply about.
There are also reports that Lara Trump, Ivanka’s sister-in-law, is considering bidding for the U.S. In her native state of North Carolina, the senate. The New York Times announced earlier that Lara, who is married to Eric, the son of former President Trump, was considering running for the seat that will be vacated by the withdrawal of Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.).
Several Republicans spoke favorably of Lara Trump’s prospective bid. Kellyanne Conway, a former senior White House advisor, said she “would be formidable,” citing her willingness to raise funds and her abilities as a messenger.
The Times now says, however, that “people briefed on the discussions” said that Lara Trump is unlikely to run for office, like Ivanka.
To date, no members of the family of former President Trump have made a public announcement announcing their intention to run for office.
As for the former president, who was convicted of inciting the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. on impeachment charges, Donald Trump, Capitol, told Newsmax host Greg Kelly on Wednesday that he will not yet say whether he’s going to be a presidential candidate in 2024.
Trump said, “Well, we have tremendous support. I won’t say yet, but we have tremendous support,” I’m looking at the survey numbers around the roof.
