You are wrong if you thought the defeat of Hillary Clinton was the end of the Clinton political dynasty.
The New York Post reports Chelsea Clinton is gearing up to run for a possible run for Congress.
According to the story, Clinton would seek to replace Rep. Nita Lowy if she retires from the 17th Congressional District in New York.
The 17th Congressional District includes Chappaqua in Westchester County, NY – where Hillary and Bill Clinton live.
Chelsea currently lives in NYC but her parents bought a $1.16 million house next door to Clinton’s primary residence for their daughter.
A source told us, “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.”
The source continued, “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.”
It appears the rejection of Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton during the recent presidential race is not the end of political dynasties.
With Andrew Cuomo as governor, New York is already suffering from political families – the last thing the state needs is Chelsea.
