Chelsea Clinton spoke to a packed room of volunteers and thanked them for their support of her mother, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. 

She spoke about her grandfather, who graduated from Penn State in 1935, and her grandmother who wished she was able to finish college as he did. 

She also stressed the need to register young people in Pennsylvania to vote in the coming election. 

Clinton was introduced by Jillian Warner, a field intern for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. At age 17, she isn’t able to vote in November, so she’s contributing as a campaign volunteer. She said, “Tonight is a great night to get a bunch of new people involved, and you know with Chelsea there’s a lot of energy to pick us up and carry us through November.”
