Kylie Jenner could be the answer Hillary Clinton is looking for. At least, that’s what Clinton’s camp believes, according to one report.
On Saturday, Radar Online reported that Clinton is “really worried about her support with millennials,” and she believes an endorsement from the youngest Keeping Up With the Kardashians star could give Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton the boost she believes she needs.
“Kylie is the perfect age to support Hillary now and she has exactly what Hillary needs. She’s 18 and she has over 50 million followers on Instagram. Hillary wants her support.”
An endorsement for Hillary from Kylie Jenner wouldn’t be that far-fetched, as several of Kylie’s sisters have already voiced support for the woman who hopes to be the first female president. Kendall Jenner has shown her support for Hillary Clinton on Instagram, and Kim Kardashian famously took a selfie with her husband Kanye West and Hillary Clinton at a campaign fundraiser last year.
It remains to be seen whether the Kardashian-Jenner influence will be beneficial for Bill Clinton’s wife, but that’s not stopping the Clinton camp from courting Kylie Jenner, according to Radar Online.
“Hillary is courting Kylie because she needs the help and she thinks it will help her connect to a younger demographic. Kylie could be a big influence in the race and Hillary needs all the help she can get.”
Meanwhile, as Hillary Clinton reportedly seeks support from Kylie Jenner, another star has voiced his support for a Republican presidential hopeful.
On Sunday, New Kids On the Block member and actor Donnie Wahlberg voiced his support for Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
“Even though we do not see eye to eye on every issue, I know that Marco is a man of principle who can be trusted to keep us safe and give each and every one of us a shot at the American Dream,” Wahlberg said in a press release.

He added, “Marco is a humble man who has not forgotten his roots, and he will fight to make sure that where you come from does not determine how far you can go. We need a leader like Marco to inspire a new Republican party and unite our nation, and I am proud to support him for President.”

The same press release indicated that Donnie Wahlberg would be joining Marco Rubio on the campaign trail at a campaign in North Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday night.

Back in August, Wahlberg had previously endorsed Carly Fiorina. As recently as February 9, Wahlberg tweeted that he liked Fiorina’s chances in the New Hampshire primary, and added that he believed that Rubio’s performance in the New Hampshire primary would be impacted by media coverage.
Wahlberg tweeted, “It’s in medias interest to see @marcorubio do poorly in #NHPrimary. Because a win or second ends the suspense, and nomination is likely his.”
