Former Rep. Mar­jor­ie Mar­gol­ies (D), whose son is mar­ried to Chelsea Clin­ton, said she was un­sure if Bill and Hil­lary Clin­ton would cam­paign for her. Mar­gol­ies: “Let me back up and say that I really want to run on what I’ve done. They’ve been very nice about my do­ing this, but I think it’s way too pre­ma­ture to talk in terms of wheth­er, when, all this kind of stuff. It’s ter­ribly im­port­ant to un­der­score that I’ve run sev­er­al races without wor­ry­ing about the Clin­tons’ coat­tails and have won. I really want to run on my own bona fides. … Ob­vi­ously we’ve talked about it. They’ve been very nice, but I’m not count­ing on them or not count­ing on them. Right now I’m con­cen­trat­ing on what we can do.” (Phil­adelphia In­quirer)
