There’s no better surrogate to talk you up than one of your own. Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton, was in Westerville, Ohio, Thursday afternoon to help open the 54th campaign office for the Clinton-Kaine campaign.
Hillary Clinton is engaged in a historic fight with her Republican presidential opponent Donald Trump, who recent polls show has edged out in front of the former secretary of state by five points in Ohio after trailing her in the key battleground state for many months.
Speaking to 125 energized Clinton campaign supporters, daughter Chelsea listed many reasons why Democrats must capture the white House if all the progress made over the last eight years under the administration of President Barack Obama is to remain in place. From protecting the Affordable Care act to helping students refinance their loans to climate change and more, Chelsea hit all the high notes in an unpretentious manner that showed how confident she is in her role as daughter in chief of one of America’s most storied political families.
Avery Clement and Bart Rutherford, Clinton campaign workers in central Ohio, introduced Mrs. Clinton to the supporters who took time to show up today. They and Chelsea reminded everyone that 54 days remain until Election Day, and turning out to vote is more important than ever before.
Chelsea said she’ll be back in the Buckeye State as soon as next Thursday when she hits the campaign again for her mom, this time in Toledo.
