Chelsea Clinton Being Wooed To Run In NY-18th District

By John Amato

October 26, 2011

The Politico had reported that it appeared Chelsea Clinton was preparing to enter the life of politics on Oct. 7th. Today, The Talk of the Sound is reporting that she's considering running in NY-18, which is Westchester County.

Talk of the Sound has learned that Chelsea Clinton may run for Congress next year.

Clinton has been approached by "the right people" in the New York Democratic Party, according to one source in Albany. While no decision has been made, Clinton is said to be "actively considering" a Congressional run from New York State in 2012.


Bill and Hillary Clinton have owned a home in New York's 19th Congressional District since 1999. The 19th is a swing district that went for Republican Nan Hayworth in 2010. The 18th District on the other hand is solidly Democratic. Barack Obama won the district in 2008 by 62% to 38%, John Kerry won in 2004 by 58% to 42%. Al Gore won the district 58% to 39%.

One senior Democrat, a former elected official in New York, told Talk of the Sound that Democrats involved in the discussions are excited, seeing Chelsea Clinton as an "automatic win" for the Democrats in 2012.

The house seat from the New York 18th District is currently held by U.S. Representative Nita M. Lowey (D-NY). She will be 74 next year and is widely expected to retire from Congress in 2012.

That's an interesting choice. She's asking to be thrown into a hellish political environment, but she appears headed for politics. It's a district she could win. You can only imagine the pitchforks that will be wielded against her by the right once she enters the political arena.

    Not every child of a politician is a traitorous ignorant failure. This is only one example:

    Same can be siad about our current Sec of State.
  • ProudPr... ducdodger 2011/10/28 20:21:13
    Secretary Clinton has done a fine job as Secretary of State. And she even knows how to pronounce "nuclear".
  • ducdodger ProudPr... 2011/10/28 20:24:12
    Really she has done such a fine job that the middle east is falling apart, and she didn't even know what DOJ was doing in Mexico. Yeah she is just a great Sec of State. Oh I also forgot she backed obama when sold our allies down the river.
  • ProudPr... ducdodger 2011/10/28 20:58:19
    The Middle East is in a lot better shape today than it was three years ago, and the DOJ is a separate agency from the State Department. And unlike the previous administration, this President has never "sold our allies down the river". Sorry, no Freedom Fries this time.
  • ducdodger ProudPr... 2011/11/01 15:48:50
    Really, show how little you know. The State department has to ok any law enforcement agency working in another country, hence the reason they should have know about the fast an furious program. Second Obama has sold out Israel at every turn and not to mention he let MUbaric go down with out lifting a finger to help him.. As far as the middle east being a better place not by a long shot, People are dieing every day there simply because the radicals are trying to creat a califate there.

    They weren't working in another country; the transactions took place in Texas and the guns were allowed to cross the border afterwards. President Obama has been, as Netanyahu himself has said, a strong and ongoing ally to Israel. I bet you're one of those who attacked him for making the same proposal to try to settle the Palestinian border issue as his three predecessors did, aren't you? And of course he let a brutal dictator "go down" to the population of the country that he had oppressed. Why would he help a dictator? It's not like he sent John McCain to try to sell him arms, the way Bush did with Qadaffi.
  • ducdodger ProudPr... 2011/11/01 17:35:40
    Where do you think the customs agent was shot. and yet the ATF and DOJ were working over there. Really is that why at every turn Obama has put down Israel and When Netanyahu was here he failed to meet with himuntil he blasted him in congress. As far as palistien goes they are nothing more than teroorist and murdering thugs.
    for 40 years now there has been peace between Egypt and Israel and now that Obama failed to stand by our allie egypt has been launching or allow rocket to be launched at Israel. As far as Qudaffi goes Obama violated a law that signed during reagans years that did not allow the US to assinate any political leader. Do I care he is gone no, but like you and the rest of you libs said when Bush was in power it was illegal for what Obama did, at least Bush had congressional approval.
