Chelsea Clinton to appear in Cape Girardeau

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of top Democratic presidential contender U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, will appear at Cape Girardeau campaign event Sunday evening,

Clinton, 27, is scheduled to show up at 7 p.m. at Grace Cafe, 818 Broadway. Fliers announcing the appearance were being distributed Saturday evening in downtown Cape Girardeau nightspots.

The event is part of the Clinton campaign's outreach to younger voters, said Carly Lindauer, spokeswoman for the Clinton campaign, in a telephone interview early Sunday morning.

The visit has been kept low-key, Lindauer said, in an attempt to reach a targeted audience of college students and because there is limited space at Grace's Cafe. "We're flyering and asking college students to come an ask her questions," Lindauer said.

Chelsea Clinton is the only daughter of Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton. Sen. Hillary Clinton is one of the three leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination. The wife of former President Bill Clinton has been a U.S. Senator representing New York since 2001.
