We’d never guess that Kylie Jenner had an interest in politics, but word on the street is that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is hoping to win the 18-year-old’s endorsement.
Clinton is trailing behind opponent Bernie Sanders in the millennial vote, and she needs to generate more interest from youngins like Kylie.
“Hillary has been really worried about her support with millennials,” a source told Radar Online. “She has a great relationship with the Kardashians so her people have been trying to get Kylie Jenner to endorse her.”
Two days ago, Kylie’s sister Kendall shared a photo of herself wearing a Clinton T-shirt, tweeting “Shirt by @themarcjacobs. History by @hillaryclinton.” She included the hashtags #MadeForHistory and #ImWithHer.

Kylie’s big sister Kim Kardashian has expressed enthusiastic support for Clinton, famously snapping a selfie with the former secretary of state backstage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Hillary Clinton talks about how she never looked better in our perfectly lit selfie!!!! #LUMEE #LOVEHER”
Following a fundraiser last August, Kim tweeted, “I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident”
Clinton reportedly believes a Kylie endorsement would be a huge coup for her campaign and will help her drum up support among young voters.
“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.”
Other young stars who have joined Team Clinton include Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, and awkwardly, Lindsay Lohan.
