If 2020 has indicated anything, it’s that this will be an interesting decade in American politics.

At this time, the Trump 2020 campaign remains entangled in a plethora of legal battles regarding the election. Just yesterday, Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani alleged innumerable cases of voter fraud; they also stated that the evidence-gathering phase remains underway and ongoing.

Amid uncertainty about the 2020 presidential election, House Republicans are celebrating a win of multiple new seats; meanwhile, the GOP Senate remains on edge, seeing as two Georgia run-offs will determine whether or not the upper congressional body remains red.

Amid all the ongoing processes and litigation associated with this year’s election, there is news that Lara Trump, daughter-in-law to President Trump, may run for a North Carolina Senate seat in 2022, per Townhall.

What to Know About Lara Trump’s Possible Senate Run

Trump’s possible 2022 Senate run would come amid the retirement of Richard Burr, a GOP North Carolina senator. Burr, by the way, is already on record stating that he won’t run again, hence clearing a clearer path for a potential Lara Trump candidacy.

It’s important to note that North Carolina also happens to be the home state of the president’s daughter-in-law. The 2022 Republican primary for the North Carolina Senate race is already projected to be interesting; thus far, additional reports indicate that Rep. Mark Walker and others may also seek the North Carolina Senate seat in 2022.

The 2020 Factor

The outcome of the 2020 presidential election could certainly impact the logistics of support for a potential Lara Trump Senate race.

Should President Trump retain the White House for another four years, he and his allies could certainly support her in her bid. Townhall also states that should Trump lose the 2020 election, he could also support his daughter-in-law while strengthening his own political alliances in North Carolina for a potential 2024 race.

At this point, however, a lot will happen between now and 2022. The fate of the White House and the U.S. Senate remains very much up in the air; the outcome of the 2020 presidential election coupled with the two Georgia run-offs will undoubtedly impact political dynamics in this country.
