President Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump during an interview on the "John Solomon Reports" podcast did not rule out the possibility of one day running for elected office.

In a BUSR/UNLV Lee Business School poll of 221 self-identified Tar Heel State Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, Lara Trump, the wife of the president's son Eric, was the top choice for the 2022 North Carolina Republican Senate primary.

While a significant 39% were undecided, Lara Trump lead among the names tested in the poll scoring 24%, compared to 23% for former Gov. Pat McCrory and much smaller percentages for a few others. The margin of error is +/- 7 percentage points.

During the interview Trump noted that her current focus remains on the recent election, but she also remarked, "Never say never, but I have nothing to declare as of today."

Also during the show, she pointed out that people who drive and fly must have identification, and said that people should also have to have ID to vote in the United States:

"You have to have a driver's license to drive a car. You have to have ID to get on a plane. And you know what? You should have some form of identification to state who you are and if you are a legal citizen of the United States and of voting age, to go vote in a presidential or otherwise in any other election," she said. "And I think most people are coming around to that. And think about how different this election would be right now if that was the standard."
