Kim Kardashian, who is one of the most visible members of the Kardashian family, is making a bid for a Senate seat in 2020.
In an article published Tuesday, The New York Times said that the Kardashian-led “Dancing With the Stars” cast member had “died up to $5 million” from endorsements and that she “has been linked to more than a dozen Senate campaigns.”
It also said she is considered “a leading contender for the 2020 Republican nomination for the seat held by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. She is known for her flamboyant style and is one the most sought-after female politicians in the country.”
The article did not give an exact number, but the race is expected to be competitive.
The Times said the former reality star “is a favorite among the stars who have come to know her over the years and is considered the future of the Republican Party.”
The former reality television star, who was born Kim Kardashian and is a member of the Kylie Jenner family, had been working on a Senate bid since March of 2016.
Her campaign is scheduled to launch in the New York City borough of Queens on July 12.
The article said that while she has been the subject of media speculation about whether she would run, Kardashian is “not interested.”
Kardashian is not the only Kardashian-owned brand that is considering a Senate run.
Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter Kim Kardashian West is also reportedly “considering a Senate campaign,” according to the report.
She would be the second daughter of the late pop star and reality television personality.
The 25-year-old West has said that she is considering running for the U.S. Senate and that the Senate race “is very important to me.
There’s a lot of pressure on women in this country right now and that’s very important for me.”
She is also rumored to be working on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” spinoff series.
The Kardashians, who were nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Reality TV Series for their performance on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” are expected to announce their next Senate bid at a press conference in New York on June 30.
