Though family loyalty runs deep for Donald Trump’s oldest children, who have become a common sight on the campaign trail, party loyalty is a different matter, as only one is a registered Republican.

While eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., is a member of the party his father is representing, siblings Ivanka and Eric are not enrolled in any political party, according to New York State Board of Elections records reported Yahoo News.

Brother and sister have, however, donated to members of both political parties over the years. Campaign finance records show that Eric, 32, has given over $138,000 to Republican candidates in 11 contributions. He also donated  $1,000 to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in 2010, according to Yahoo.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, 34, has contributed over $240,000 to both Republican and Democratic candidates over the years. According to records. she donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid and several Democrat candidates for Congress. The businesswoman and mother of three also financially contributed to the presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain.

Ivanka donated $2,000 in 2010 to the U.S. Senate campaign for Carly Fiorina, who went on to run against GOP front-runner Trump. Fiorina dropped out of the race in February and endorsed Trump’s rival, Sen. Ted Cruz last month.

Trump and his wife, Melania, are Republican Party members according to New York State Board of Elections records but no voting records were found for younger daughter Tiffany, 22, according to Yahoo News. Trump’s youngest child, Barron, is 10 years old.
