(CNN)Amid rumblings that President Donald Trump could mount another presidential run in 2024, voters may see a Trump on the ballot before that.

Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, expressed her openness Wednesday to a 2022 Senate bid in her native North Carolina.

News that Lara Trump was exploring a run was first reported by The New York Times.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who also hails from North Carolina, told The News & Observer he has "no intentions" to seek the seat himself, but has had conversations about a potential Lara Trump run.

My conversations have included some of the sitting House members as well as Lara Trump, and, to my knowledge, no one's made a definitive decision on whether to toss their hat in the ring or not.

Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump, grew up in Wrightsville Beach and named her daughter "Carolina," a fact the President often touted on the campaign trail.

"We had an asset from North Carolina named Lara Trump, married to the legendary Eric Trump," the President said during a rally in Wisconsin in the final days of the campaign.

"We had a big asset there, Lara Trump, and she knew that area so well and they loved her so much.

In 2016, North Carolinians voted for Trump 50. 5% to 46. 8% for Hillary Clinton.

Lara Trump dipped her toe in campaigning in 2016, but emerged as a top surrogate and paid adviser during the 2020 campaign, attending events and making frequent media appearances.
