Only 125 People Turn Out for Chelsea Clinton in Iowa

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, campaign

A small crowd greeted Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea at a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Tuesday. At the Orpheum theater, Chelsea defended her mother and attacked Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump to a crowd reported to include just 125 people.

Chelsea Clinton told those in attendance that she doesn’t want to live in a country with what she called the “demeaning speak” of Trump.

“The demeaning speak against Americans with disabilities, against women, against minorities, against Muslims, against immigrants, against our veterans, against a gold-star family,” Clinton said. “None of that is the country that I want to live in and it’s certainly not the country that I want my children, our children, and our grandchildren to grow up in.”

Chelsea spoke for about ten minutes and took questions for another 25 before posing for pictures with those in attendance.

President Obama won Iowa in both 2008 and 2012 but the Real Clear Politics average of polls in Iowa shows Trump leading Hillary by 5% and outside the margin of error for the polls collectively. Early voting is underway in Iowa having started on September 29th. Iowa has six electoral votes.
