(New York, NY) -- Chelsea Clinton is clearing up speculation saying she will not run for Congress next year in New York.
There had been talk that the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would run for the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Congresswoman Nita Lowey. Chelsea Clinton squashed the rumors when asked about it this morning on ABC's The View, noting that she wasn't sure if she would run for office one day, but right now her answer is no.
Lowey, a longtime Clinton family friend announced last week that she would not run for re-election in 2020 after representing parts of New York City and Westchester County in Congress for more than three decades.
