Barron Trump, Donald Trump’s youngest son, is scheduled to be one of the delegates representing Florida at the Republican National Convention in July, a notable move given that he has been kept largely out of public eye till now, reports Reuters.

A campaign official confirmed an earlier report from NBC that Barron Trump, 18, was selected by the Republicans as a delegate from Florida.

Barron has been interested in the country’s political process, said the official, requesting anonymity to discuss internal campaign matters.

Presidential campaigns submit a list of proposed delegates to the state party in Florida, which in this case would have included Barron.

His selection underscores the fact how deeply the Trump family has become involved in Republican politics of late.

Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, has been named co-chair of the Republican National Committee in March. While, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., Barron’s older brothers, have been active been actively campaigning for the former president.

Both were on Florida’s 41-person delegate list for the convention in Milwaukee, along with Tiffany Trump, Trump’s youngest daughter, according to the campaign official.

Trump’s older daughter, Ivanka Trump, is the only child of the former president who was not on the delegate roster.

Delegates are allocated after primary contests in each state. While the rules are complex, delegates are usually assigned to represent a candidate at the convention, where the nominee has been officially selected.

Given Trump’s domination in the Republican contest, almost all delegates in Milwaukee are expected to support the former president who was impeached during his term.
