MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chelsea Clinton will headline her first solo fundraisers for mother Hillary Clinton's presidential bid and campaign in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire in the new year.

The daughter of the Democratic front-runner and former President Bill Clinton will appear at two Boston fundraisers on Jan. 11 and will campaign in the early states on her mother's behalf. That's according to a person familiar with campaign who spoke on condition of anonymity because the news has not been made public.

Chelsea Clinton, 35, was an active surrogate during her mother's first presidential campaign in 2008, speaking primarily to students and younger voters, but has not yet played a public role this time around. Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are parents of a 1-year-old daughter, Charlotte.

The younger Clinton's plans were first reported by Time.
