Amid speculation that one or more members of former President Donald Trump’s family will launch primary challenges against incumbent Republicans in the upcoming 2022 midterm election year, at least one Trump has reportedly ruled out doing so.
The New York Times reported that Ivanka Trump will not run against Sen. Marco Rubio (R) in the 2022 Florida GOP Senate primary. Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner, and their family moved to Florida permanently after her father’s presidential term ended. Since the move, rumors have swirled that Ivanka Trump would seek statewide office, possibly challenging Rubio for Senate.
A spokesman for Rubio told the Times that Ivanka is supporting the senator for re-election in 2022.
“Marco did speak with Ivanka a few weeks ago,” the spokesman said. “Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s re-election. They had a great talk.” (Read more from “Report: Ivanka Trump Rules Out Challenging Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate” HERE)
