Hillary Clinton was busy Thursday trying to convince voters in West Virginia, but she was also at work in the Bluegrass state. The senator once again sent her daughter, Chelsea, to campaign for her.

Chelsea's first stop on Thursday was to speak to a group in Lexington.

Later in the day, she traveled to Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. There, she spoke to a crowd of about 400 people. She talked about a broad range of issues including financing for higher education, health care and immigration. Clinton also took questions from the audience.

Clinton supporter, Lettie Dixon, had the opportunity to ask Chelsea about the war in Iraq. "We need to stand behind someone who is ready to bring our troops home", she said.

Her final stop of the day was in Frankfort where she helped open her mother's campaign headquarters in that city.

This isn't Chelsea Clinton's first visit to Kentucky. She spoke at UK and U of L last month. She was also at the Kentucky Derby in Louisville to help her mother campaign.

    I wouldn't vote for Hillary or Obama. Neither of them have told us how they would improve the country. Heck after they took control of congress is when the economy went down.

    Amen Salute!!!!!!!!!!! It is about respect. At least Hillary does show respect for our country and the men and women that are over serving.

    This is to WOW in Richmond: Guess what you have stuck your big foot in your mouth because I do have a college degree plus. Yes I will be voting for Hillary. I do not care if it is over a flag pin, why will he not place his hand over his heart during the pledge, that his wife stated that she was proud to be an American once in her life and sitting in the same church for 20 years and opps I didn't realize my minister was prejudice!!! I can not believe that people are actually falling for the things this man is telling people. Because I do have a college education is why I am smart enough to not fall for Obamas stupid line about we need a change and then never specifies what kind of change he is referring to. So next time before you start saying that it is the uneducated that are voting for her you should stop and think. Also my whole family will be voting for her and yes they are also college graduates. Go Hillary!
