On Monday, Ivanka Trump showed her love for Iowa through a simple tweet, which has since fueled speculation that she may be considering a run for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Iowa votes first in the presidential primaries, and is an essential part to building momentum for any of the campaigns.

Ivanka’s tweet read: “Iowa!” 

However, President Trump is still believed to be considering a second run in 2024, making him one of few presidents to run again after losing reelection.

According to Axios, Trump may hold a rally in Florida on January 20 as president-elect Joe Biden holds his inaugural address.

Trump may announce his 2024 run during this rally, which would clear the field of almost all Republican challengers, his children included, since he still holds a greater part of the Republican base.

Speculations also state that Donald Trump Jr. may be considering a run for office, with many observers believing that he has a much closer relationship with his father’s supporters compared to sister Ivanka.

Lara Trump, Eric Trump's wife, is reportedly seeking a spot in the Senate in 2022 in her home state of North Carolina. Current Senator Richard Burr announced that he will not run for reelection, and stepped down as the chairman for the Senate intelligence committee in May following an investigation which sought to determine he was guilty of insider trading. The conclusion of the investigation is yet to be announced.

Rumors about Ivanka’s political aspiration have been swirling for a while, speculating a possible 2022 Senate run in Florida against Marco Rubio. Trump beat Rubio by 19 points in Florida's 2016 Republican primary.

According to the New York Post, Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner purchased a plot of land in Miami Beach, which is speculated to be part of a plan to build a support base in the state.

Florida has been a great support base for Trump, and while it is considered a swing state, Florida voted for Trump twice, with his winning margin up in 2020 from 2016.

The former political editor at the Tampa Bay Times, Adam Smith, told CNN that the "normal rules would not apply to Ivanka. I think she'd be the immediate frontrunner if she ran for US Senate against Rubio, given her father's popularity in the Sunshine State."

However, chairman of the Florida Republican Party, Joe Gruters, called rumors of Ivanka’s Senate run "just noise."
