Chelsea Clinton is being eyed for a congressional run, according to Emily Smith in the New York Post's Page Six column.

The daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton could run for the seat in New York City's 17th Congressional District held now by Rep. Nita Lowey, a 79-year-old career politician, once Lowey decides to retire, according to Page Six.

Lowey's districts include parts of Rockland and Westchester counties, and the Clinton family's home base, Chappaqua. In August, the Clintons bought a home next to theirs, which intended for Chelsea and her family, husband Marc Mezvinsky and their two children.

The Page Six column said that the Clinton daughter lives and is registered to vote in Manhattan, but could change her residence to Chappaqua to run for Lowey's position.

A source told the paper that the Clinton family will continue their political aspirations.

"While it is true the Clintons need some time to regroup after Hillary's crushing loss, they will not give up. Chelsea would be the next extension of the Clinton brand," said the source.

"In the past few years, she has taken a very visible role in the Clinton Foundation and on the campaign trail. While politics isn't the life Hillary wanted for Chelsea, she chose to go on the campaign trail for her mother and has turned out to be very poised, articulate, and comfortable with the visibility."

Chappaqua is the "logical" place for Clinton to run from, according to the source. "It would be straightforward for her to raise money and build a powerful base."
