Following Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, the rumor mill began swirling. Would Hillary ever be running for office again? There was no shortage of reports quoting “inside sources” that Hillary was planning a run for mayor of New York City, but that’s been proven to be nothing more than speculation.
As for the rest of the family, would Chelsea Clinton be the next to run for office, continuing the political dynasty? Just two days after the election, the New York Post reported that Chelsea was being groomed for a congressional run.
Chelsea Clinton, who attended her friend Tanya Taylor’s fashion presentation Friday, shared some helpful advice on how to deal with social media bullies: Focus on making your voice heard and ignore the taunts and low blows. “Just have it be background noise,” she told The Post.
Clinton also had an emphatic, one-word response to rumors that she’ll run for New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s seat: “No!”
And with those rumors put to rest, the tabloids are now speculating as to whether or not she’ll run in 2020. The answer is likely to be much of the same.
