Chelsea Clinton shuts down rumors on run for Lowey's seat in Congress

Posted: Updated:

Chelsea Clinton has shut down rumors that she might run for Congress.

Clinton said on ABC's "The View" that she is not considering running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Nita Lowey.

Lowey announced last week that she would not seek a 17th term, and there was immediate speculation that centered on the 39-year-old Clinton.

Two Democrats have already announced their intention to run for the seat: Rockland County attorney Mondaire Jones and Westchester Assemblyman David Buchwald.
