We announced back in December that rumors swirled that Ivanka Trump was about to challenge Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his seat in the Senate. She seems to be putting these reports to rest now, though.
Ivanka reportedly told Rubio that, despite the fact that she had just moved to Miami with her husband, Jared Kushner, and their three children, she would not be running against him after all. Speculation had been mounting that Ivanka was trying to start her own political career, and given her move there, when he was up for reelection in 2022, it seemed likely she would challenge Rubio.

Ivanka told Daily Mail that she feels that Rubio is her “good personal friend,” which is why she does not want to run against him.
“A few weeks ago, Marco and Ivanka talked. Ivanka offered her support for the reelection of Marco and they had a great conversation,’ said Nick Iacovella, Rubio’s spokesman. “We are discussing a joint event to highlight the successful push by Marco and Ivanka to expand the Child Tax Credit.”
If this event goes through, it will be seen as Ivanka’s endorsement of Rubio in his reelection campaign.
This comes as Ivanka’s sister-in-law, Lara Trump, who is married to her brother, Eric, in her home state of North Carolina, is reportedly considering a Senate run. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said after retiring Republican Senator Richard Burr voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial that Lara would almost certainly score the Republican nomination if he were to impeach former President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial.
Last Sunday, Graham said, “My friend Richard Burr just made Lara Trump a nearly certain Senate seat nominee in North Carolina to replace him if she runs.”
