Chelsea Clinton Campaigns For Her Mom in Winston-Salem

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The former and potential first daughter was in the Triad Tuesday, speaking to students at Wake Forest University as part of a Women in Leadership forum. Chelsea Clinton was joined by a businesswoman, councilwoman, student and professor as they discussed issues facing women in this election.

The people at the event were predominantly Hillary Clinton supporters but there was one woman who asked about her controversial emails and who wanted Clinton to talk more about her positions.  To the question about about the emails, Chelsea Clinton said there is no one she trusts more than her mom.

"She is talking about what she thinks is really at stake in this election and I hear her do that everyday and  I wish that were covered more," said Chelsea Clinton when answering the question about her mother's policies.

Clinton went on to say that her mom talks extensively about her positions - more so than her opponent. She also talked about her mom's plans to allow students to refinance their federal student loans. She said one of the main reasons her mom is running for president is so people anywhere can access education that will help them reach their dreams.

"She believes that everyone should be able to index their loan payments to their incomes. No one should ever have to pay more than 10% of their income to repay their student loans and that after 20 years, if people have been making their payments, the rest of the loan should be forgiven," said Clinton.

Clinton had three more events in North Carolina through Wednesday.
