Report: Clinton Daughter Being Groomed for Congress

Chelsea Clinton 1

The Clinton family’s nearly 40-year political dynasty is far from over… it’s only just beginning.

The New York Post has reported that sources say Chelsea Clinton is being groomed to run for the New York congressional seat currently held by Rep. Nita Lowey, once she decides to retire.  

Bill and Hillary Clinton’s home in Chappaqua is included in Lowey’s district – and they conveniently just purchased the house next door in August, intended for daughter Chelsea, 36, her husband Mark Mezvinsky, and their two children, Charlotte and Aidan.

Chelsea and her family currently live in Manhattan, but by changing her legal residence to Chappaqua, she would be able to run for Lowey’s seat once it becomes available.

The New York Post reported:

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.”

In August, Bill and Hillary Clinton paid $1.16 million for the 3-bedroom home that adjoins their property, and sources have said that the Clintons plan to use the home as a weekend getaway for Chelsea and her family when they want to come visit and “escape the city.”

The latest addition to their growing compound is a 3,631-square-foot ranch home, with an annual tax bill of $28,790, and a 212-square-foot basement, which has “plenty of room for a private email server,” quips the NY Post.
