Ivanka Trump, the popular and a glamorous daughter of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, supposedly is the winner of a primary for the U.S. House of Representatives.
That means there are two first-time candidates in the family, unless another Ivanka Trump resides in New York City.
Whether she knows it or not, and it's probably not at this point, Ivanka received two out of a total of five write-in votes for the Reform Party nomination in New York's 12th Congressional District, according to the New York State of Politics website.
Those two votes -- roughly about 13.4 million less than her dad received in the national GOP presidential contest -- were evidently enough to give her the Reform Party nod going into the November general election after the June 28 primary results were certified earlier this month. New York City Board of Elections results appear to indicate that three other Reform Party candidates received one write-in vote each. Evidently there were no official Reform Party candidates on the ballot.
The district includes parts of Manhattan's Lower East Side, Brooklyn and Queens, and is currently represented by career politician Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat.
Ivanka Trump, 34, who is familiar to America from her roles on the Apprentice and the Celebrity Apprentice, is scheduled to introduce her dad tonight as he gives his all-important acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Given all the controversy surrounding the convention, the Trumps' prime-time father-daughter presentations will undoubtedly receive a tremendous viewership.
