Baby gets baptised, with a visit from Clinton
BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky – Katelyn Jenkins got a surprise visit from Sen. Hillary Clinton on one of the biggest days of her life so far. But odds are, she didn’t even notice.
The eight-week-old girl was getting baptised on Sunday morning at the State Street United Methodist Church, where the Democratic presidential contender paused in her campaigning to attend services.
At the sight of the former first lady, the baby’s father said: “I was pleasantly surprised and amazed.”
As for the red-haired baby in her father’s arms, she slept a bit, looked around a bit and fussed a bit.
“She just knew there was a big crowd, and everyone was looking at her,” said the baby’s father, adding that he was “possibly” a Clinton supporter. The candidate briefly chatted with the baby’s parents after the service ended.
