A person familiar with President Trump's daughter-in-law's plans, who has discussed them directly with her, told Fox News Friday that she is "interested and exploring" whether she will run.

The 38-year-old could likely be seeking to fill an expected vacancy that will left by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) in 2022.

She is a native of North Carolina and graduated from North Carolina State University but now lives with Eric and her two children in Westchester, New York.

Lara's three alies also confirmed that she has been hinting that she might run for Senate in 2022 to replace Sen.

Lara Trump was a personal trainer and TV producer for nationally-syndicated news magazine "Inside Edition" before hopping on the 2016 presidential campaign trail via a "Trump-Pence Women's Empowerment Tour".

She will be contesting the Senate run from her home state, North Carolina. "It would be formidable", said Kellyanne Conway, a former White House official and Trump campaign director in 2016.

Meanwhile, Trump's campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp praised Lara Trump and described her as "very charismatic" and someone who "has a natural instinct for politics". "Unlike many typical politicians, she connects with people and is a compelling messenger". Even in USA election 2020, the state residents voted for Donald Trump but by a smaller margin than in 2016.

North Carolina has been a Republic supporter state for the past few years now. In his chief of staff role, Meadows was at Trump's side during the president's battle with coronavirus and hospital stay.

The Times also notes that other considering a run are former Governor Pat McCrory, North Carolina Speaker Tim Moore and Republican nominee for governor Dan Forest, who lost in 2017 to Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.

Meadows was one of Trump's top allies in the U.S. House and throughout the impeachment process.
