Lara Trump, daughter-in-law to President Donald Trump and an adviser to his campaign, hasn’t ruled out running for Senate in her home state of North Carolina in 2022.

"It would be an incredible thing. It's my home state, a state I love so much and. And look, I think we need some strong Republicans in Washington, D.C. We had a great run with the Senate and the House this go-round, but you know, let's see what happens," Trump said on Fox News recently, adding, "Let's get through this one and then we'll talk about the next one."

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., has already said he intends to step down when his term ends in 2022, and President Trump has frequently noted that his daughter-in-law is ''an asset from North Carolina.''

Another member of President Trump’s inner circle from the Tar Heel state, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, recently told The News & Observer that he harbors ''no intentions'' of running for the post.

"I've had a number of people talk about running for that seat, if indeed Sen. Burr retires. My conversations have included some of the sitting House members as well as Lara Trump, and, to my knowledge, no one's made a definitive decision on whether to toss their hat in the ring or not. But in terms of my hat, it won't be in the ring," he said.
