Westchester,NY Dems are pitching Chelsea Clinton on running for Rep. Nita Lowey’s seat after retirement announcement

Suburban New York Democrats want the Clinton machine back in Congress.

Top officials in the Westchester County Democratic Party were pitching Chelsea Clinton Wednesday on launching a 2020 bid for Nita Lowey’s seat in light of the longtime congresswoman’s retirement announcement, according to a party source familiar with the matter.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss closed-door deliberations, cautioned that Clinton hasn’t personally expressed interest, but said local party leaders were reaching out to her within hours of Lowey, 82, announcing she won’t run for reelection next year.

“If you’re a Clinton and you need a hook, this is a good one,” the source told the Daily News, noting that Lowey’s 17th congressional district includes Chappaqua, the ritzy Westchester suburb where Chelsea Clinton’s prominent parents live.
