2016 Report: Team Hillary Eyeing Brooklyn for Campaign HQ

Though Democrats may not select Brooklyn to host their 2016 convention because of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s feud with the NYPD, Hillary Clinton may house her 2016 campaign headquarters there, according to The Hill.

Clinton advisers reportedly believe that “using Brooklyn for its headquarters could be a useful symbol for a campaign that hopes to win over young people and has already been attacked by Republicans as ‘old news,'” especially since the “borough is New York City’s most populous, and has had a renaissance over the last decade as many of its neighborhoods have been transformed. It is also one of the most ethnically diverse areas of the United States — another aspect Clinton’s team will want to highlight as it seeks to attract minority voters.”

Team Clinton previously wanted to run her campaign from offices near her Chappaqua, N.Y., home, but that location has reportedly been ruled out. In 2008, as The Hill notes, Clinton ran her campaign out of a “stodgy former Immigration and Naturalization Service” building in a Washington, D.C. suburb.

Brooklyn is vying to host the DNC convention along with Philadelphia and Columbus, Ohio, and Latino leaders are trying to convince national Democrats that the city would highlight the party’s pro-amnesty agenda.
