Donald Trump endorses NC Rep. Ted Budd for Senate as Lara Trump stands down

Lara Trump said during North Carolina’s Republican Convention Saturday night that she would not seek the state party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate, citing her young children – but she left open the possibility of a future run.

"No for now," she said, thanking the supporters in her home state. "Not no forever."

After she left the state, former President Donald Trump endorsed Rep. Ted Budd, R-N.C, as "your next senator" to the crowd.

"A lot of you don’t know him that well, but you’re gonna know him probably within a few minutes," he said. "Ted Budd."

Then he called Budd, of North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District, to the stage.

"I am giving him my complete and total endorsement," Trump said.

Budd thanked both Trumps for the help on his 2018 and 2020 campaigns, in which he overcame deep-pocketed Democratic challengers.

"Let’s get back to making America great again," Budd told the audience, to cheers.

Trump said he didn’t want to wait too long to endorse someone lest the primary field become too crowded – but he also thanked potential challengers for holding off as they awaited a decision on whether or not Lara Trump would throw her hat in the ring.
