Chelsea arrives in Orono on behalf of Clinton campaign.

ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Hillary Clinton sent a surrogate to Maine's second district Thursday, the second time in less than a week

Clinton's daughter visited a packed room at UMaine Orono.

"I have to do everything I can in this election to talk about and fight for what is at stake," she said. "Because I think that everything is at stake. I think this is the most consequential election of my lifetime."

She also addressed controversial remarks from both Donald Trump and Governor Paul LePage.

"I didn't think that I would see in my lifetime the almost normalization of hate speech. from Donald Trump and from the party that too often does not repudiate with what he says... well yes, and your governor."

Clinton also offered her thoughts on her mother's leaked emails.

"From whatever continues to come out and people can make their own mind, we are going to keep talking about what we think is actually at stake in this election and I hope that will matter to voters here in Maine and across the country."

With fewer than 40 days until the election, Chelsea says she hopes to answer many more questions that will help voters decide who should be the next president.
