Born into a Jewish-Moroccan family in Marrakech, Alex Lazri, the son of American billionaire Mark Lazri, is running in the 2022 US Senate election.
Alex Lazry, 33, is taking his first steps in politics and wants to become a Wisconsin senator. He is currently vice president of Milwaukee Bucks, of which his father owns a large portion.
“It’s time to dump Washington’s old ways and start thinking about the U.S. economy in a new way,” Lazri said, adding that progressive values are good for business.
Mark Lazrie is the Democratic nominee. His opponent is Republican Ron Johnson, who has been a Wisconsin senator since 2010. He must first defeat his party member Thomas Nelson. Despite his little experience, Lazri is considered a serious candidate. Among other things, he owes his father $ 1.8 billion in wealth to fund his campaign.
Precisely this point has angered Thomas Nelson, who has been asked via Twitter not to use his family’s wealth for his campaign because “no one in the Senate should buy a seat”.
