Ivanka Trump rumored to run for senate in Fla.

Rumors that Ivanka Trump will soon launch a political career have started to recirculate. According to recent reports, the President’s daughter is most likely considering Florida for a potential Senate run as she and her husband, Jared Kushner, are reportedly moving to Miami-Dade County.
“Over the last four years I’ve seen a lot, I’ve seen it’s easy for politicians to survive if they silence their convictions and skip the hard fights,” Ivanka stated. “I couldn’t believe so many politicians actually prefer to complain about a problem, rather than fix it.”
Political experts have suggested Marco Rubio’s Senate seat is the most likely target for the President’s daughter. He’s up for re-election in 2022 and is expected to run, but experts have warned a potential Ivanka campaign could be a threat to his political career.
The Florida senator would later become a political ally of President Trump, but was an avid critic during the 2016 campaign. Nonetheless, the Commander in Chief has enjoyed widespread popularity in the Sunshine State.
If Ivanka does, in fact, choose to run, experts believe she could have a real shot considering the last time Rubio faced a Trump he lost by 19-points.
Neither the White House nor the eldest First Daughter have confirmed the rumors.
