Virginia Senator Tim Kaine Chosen as VP Pick


Secretary Hillary Clinton’s has selected Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate on the 2016 Democratic Presidential ticket. Virginia Young Democrats released a statement about Senator Kaine selection as Vice Presidential nominee: 

"Senator Kaine has dedicated his life to fighting for Democratic values like civil rights, public education and economic security," said Jamie Nolan, President of VAYD. "He is a true public servant who has served the Commonwealth well for more than two decades. Virginians love Senator Kaine for his fierce advocacy, level-headed leadership and warm spirit. Secretary Clinton could not have made a better choice for her running mate. We can’t wait for America to fall in love with Senator Kaine too.”

“Over the last eight years, President Obama has achieved a lot. More than 18 million Americans have access to quality healthcare, all Americans can marry the person they love, and the unemployment rate has been cut in half. If we’ve seen nothing else from the RNC, it’s that Trump is committed to rolling back this progress,” said James Lewis, VAYD Executive Vice President. “Virginia Young Democrats are united in stopping Trump. We will do whatever it takes to elect Secretary Clinton and Senator Kaine and keep our nation moving forward.”

Senator Tim Kaine has been a friend to the Fairfax Young Democrats over the years and we will work hard to bring victory to the Democratic ticket in the fall.
