Graham: Lara Trump will be next Senator from North Carolina

North Carolina Senator Richard Burr just voted to impeach President Trump. That’s a career-ender for him, but it might be a career-maker for President Trump’s daughter in law, Lara Trump, who has expressed interest in running for the Senate in North Carolina.

Love him or hate him, Lindsey Graham has a firm grasp on the political calculus in DC, and he thinks that Burr’s folly made Lara Trump a lock.

“The biggest winner of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump,” Graham said on Fox News Sunday. “My dear friend Richard Burr, who I like and have been friends to a long time, just made Lara Trump almost the certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs, and I certainly will be behind her because she represents the future of the Republican Party.”

Watch:

Lara is the wife of Eric Trump, and was an outspoken defender of her father-in-law’s policies.
