A Friday article from Politico reported talk has spread of Ivanka Trump launching a primary challenge to Rubio. 

Girdusky on Hill.TV’s “Rising” responded to the report, explaining that one challenge the daughter and senior White House adviser could face is that she does not fit evenly into any political party. 

“The problem for Ivanka is no party wants to have her. She’s not conservative enough for Republicans. She’s a Trump, so that will kick her out of the Democratic party,” Girdusky said. 

Girdusky, author of “They’re Not Listening: How The Elites Created the National Populist Revolution,” added that another challenge would be Rubio’s strong history of support among Florida voters. 

“Florida is a very special kind of state where you have a large chunk of Cuban Republicans, and you have a Cuban U.S. Senator,” he added. “And Rubio, it's not like he just walked into the state, moved there and ran, he’s been there for a very, very long time.” 

“I don’t know if the Trump name is enough, even in Florida,” the author said.
