Chelsea Clinton being groomed to run for Congress

Even after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election and many are declaring an end to the Clinton political family, the New York Post is reporting that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a Congressional run.

Chelsea would reportedly run for New York’s 17th Congressional District, a seat which is currently held by Rep. Nita Lowey, who is 79 years old and well-respected in the community. Lowey has nearly three decades of experience, and Chelsea would not run until she decides to retire.

“While it is true the Clintons need some time to regroup after Hillary’s crushing loss, they will not give up. Chelsea would be the next extension of the Clinton brand. In the past few years, she has taken a very visible role in the Clinton Foundation and on the campaign trail. While politics isn’t the life Hillary wanted for Chelsea, she chose to go on the campaign trail for her mother and has turned out to be very poised, articulate and comfortable with the visibility,” a source told the Post.

“There has been a lot of speculation within New York Democratic circles about Lowey’s retirement and Chelsea running for the seat. There is a belief that Chappaqua is a logical place for Chelsea to run, because it would be straightforward for her to raise money and build a powerful base.”
