Welcoming Governor Tim Kaine to the U.S. Senate Race
Richmond, VA – Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman Brian Moran released the following statement today welcoming Governor Tim Kaine to the race for Jim Webb’s seat in the U.S. Senate:
“I am pleased that my friend Tim Kaine has decided to bring his strong record of results-oriented leadership to a campaign for the U.S. Senate. As Governor he made Virginia the best state for business, the best-managed state and the best state in the country to raise a child for lifetime success, and he will make a fantastic candidate to replace Senator Jim Webb.
“This campaign will provide offer a real contrast between Democratic leadership that puts working families first, and a slate of Republican candidates that are running on a Tea Party platform that has more to do with proving who has the most radical ideas than it does with making people’s lives better. No matter which candidate wins the Tea Party nomination, I am looking forward to having a real conversation with Virginians about who offers them the best shot at a Commonwealth that is more equal, more just and more prosperous for all.”
