Lena Dunham to campaign for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton certainly seems to have the hipster comedienne vote on lockdown.

After filming an episode for season 3 of "Broad City" with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, the Democratic presidential candidate has enlisted "Girls" creator Lena Dunham as a campaigner.

Dunham will campaign for the Democratic frontrunner on Jan. 9 in Des Moines and Iowa City, reports the Des Moines Register.

Clinton on why she wants to be president

"Lena has spent a lot of time with Hillary, and I bet she's got some great stories to share," Michelle Kleppe, the Iowa organizing director for Hillary for America, said in a news release.

More information on where Dunham will be campaigning will be available closer to the event.

Dunham also interviewed Clinton for her website, Lenny Letter, when she asked if Clinton considered herself a feminist.

"Absolutely," Clinton told her. "I'm always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, 'well, I believe in equal rights but I'm not a feminist.' Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights."

Dunham also has another Iowa connection: She ran a story line about the Iowa Writers' Workshop in season 4 of "Girls." Her character, Hannah Horvath, enrolled in the school and then left the program after dramatically and hilariously burning bridges with every single one of her classmates.
