ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Chelsea Clinton says her mother is "the right president for my granddaughter" during a round-table event on early childhood education in Concord, New Hampshire, Tuesday (January 12). "I certainly know that becoming a grandmother has only deepened my mother's resolve to work on issues like those related to early learning and early childhood, that has brought us here together today, and also was one of the real reasons she decided to run for president," said Chelsea. Hillary Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, is making her first campaign stops of 2016 with three events in New Hampshire. The Democratic front-runner, Clinton is just weeks out from the first party-nominating contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, where she is trying to fend off her chief rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a democratic socialist who has made reducing income inequality the theme of his campaign. Clinton has called for a tax cut to help middle-class parents cope with rising child care costs and said she wanted to boost services for low-income families with young children.
