Hillary picks Tim Kaine as running mate

He’s been Senator and Governor of Virginia


Secretary Clinton announced Tim Kaine, a junior Unites States Senator from Virginia, as her pick for the position of Vice President today at 8:15pm.

Previous speculation on her top choices included individuals such as Tom Perez, Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker, and Tim Kaine.

Clinton announced the highly anticipated partnership to supporters via a text message.

When asked earlier this year whether Mr. Kaine was boring, the Democratic nominee said “I love that about him…He’s never lost an election.”

This follows Donald Trump’s announcement of Governor Pence as his pick and just days before the Democratic National Convention, where both Hillary and her new running mate will give the nation their first look at the duo.

Kaine was elected to the Senate in 2012 after earning his J.D at Harvard Law School.
