South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham seems to think so. And, sadly, he may be right. If Marjorie Taylor Greene can get elected to Congress, why not Lara Trump? Both her and Greene embody GOP values right now.
Here is Ray Hartmann at Salon:
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has somehow decided that Donald Trump’s escape means Lara Trump is now certain to become senator of North Carolina. She’s expected to seek the seat being vacated next year by Senator Richard Burr, who infuriated the Republican Party Saturday by voting to convict Trump. Burr had announced in 2016 he wouldn’t seek another term in 2022.
If Graham has a reason to elevate Lara Trump other than her last name, he’s keeping it to himself.
“The biggest winner I think of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump,” Graham told Fox News’ Chris Wallace. “If she runs, I will certainly be behind her because I think she represents the future of the Republican Party.”
This will likely come as news to Senator Tim Scott, Graham’s fellow Republican from South Carolina, who has already endorsed the candidacy of former Rep. Mark Walker for the seat. The same goes for Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma and former Governor Mike Huckabee, who hosted Walker on his show.
