Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has endorsed former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, as a senatorial candidate for North Carolina.
Graham said incumbent Sen. Richard Burr’s vote to convict Trump in his Senate impeachment trial ensured that she will emerge as the frontrunner to replace him if she enters the race.
“The biggest winner, I think, 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,” he said.
Graham added that “I’ll certainly be behind her because I think she represents the future of the Republican Party.”
