CHICAGO (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton lent a hand to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s re-election campaign Wednesday with a fundraiser and a quick, controlled public appearance in a chat over coffee.
The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady headlined a private fundraiser for her fellow Democrat at a downtown Chicago law firm. The two then appeared together briefly at a DePaul University bookstore, where they posed for “selfies” with students, ordered coffee and hot chocolate, and engaged in small talk that included Clinton’s recently born granddaughter.
Clinton, a potential 2016 candidate for president, paid for the drinks.
