Jonathan Last wants Lara Trump to run for U.S. Senate in North Carolina because it would answer some burning questions:
- Will any Republican even be allowed to challenge a Trump family member running for office? My guess is no. If a Trump family member declares even the intention to run, no R in good standing will be allowed to remain in the field.
- How much of the Trump political brand extends downstream to family members in polling?
- What sort of platform would a Trump family member run on? Would they run merely as a stalking horse for Donald J. Trump’s return? Or would they run on some version of their own MAGA policies?
- How much money could a Trump family member raise from MAGA nation in a statewide race?
