‘Will not give up’

Could Chelsea Clinton be eyeing a run for Congress?

By WITW Staff on November 11, 2016

According to sources reported by The New York Post, Chelsea Clinton is being groomed to run for Congress as a successor for the New York seat currently held by 79-year-old U.S. Representative Nita Lowey when she decides to retire. Lowey represents the 17th Congressional District, which includes Chappaqua, where Bill and Hillary Clinton live and just purchased a home for Chelsea and her family.  If Chelsea, who currently lives in Manhattan, were to change her legal residence to Chappaqua, she would be eligible to run for Lowey’s seat. “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,” an anonymous source told the Post.  “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.” So far, neither Lowey nor Clinton have responded to the rumors.
