President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, is considering running for U.S. Senate in her home state of North Carolina in 2022, according to multiple reports.

The New York Times cited "three allies" who claim that Ms. Trump, 38, who is married to the president's second son, Eric, is purportedly mulling a bid to succeed retiring GOP Sen. Richard Burr.

Ms. Trump has been an outspoken advocate for her father-in-law leading up to the 2020 election, serving as an adviser to the Trump/Pence campaign and leading its Women's Empowerment Tour. She also spoke at the Republican National Convention earlier this year.

Lara Trump previously worked as a television producer and a personal trainer. She and Eric Trump currently live in New York with their two children, so her prospective candidacy would require a move.
