Chelsea Clinton considering House seat.


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.
