Billie Jean King and Micah Kellner Run at Women for Hillary Event

Tennis great Billie Jean King really threw herself into an introduction for Hillary Clinton at this morning’s Women for Hillary event.

“Hillary can hit the ground running,” she said, running in place on a stage in the middle of the Hilton ballroom. “I mean she lived there for eight years. I mean, come on!”

And later, during a “town hall” style question-and-answer portion of the event, Carolyn Maloney injected some local politics into the breakfast by asking Hillary if she’d campaign for Micah Kellner in an Upper East Side special election for the Assembly to be held tomorrow.

Hillary answered by telling Maloney (and the confused crowd) that she had already cut a robo-call for Kellner, who she then invited up to the platform to say hello.
