Coming as no surprise, Hillary has texted to supporters her choice of Tim Kaine to be her Vice President. Â Between Governor McAuliffe and Tim Kaine as Vice President, Virginia should turn blue in November once again.
From the NY Times:
In the end, Mrs. Clinton, who told PBS she is â€œafflicted with the responsibility gene,â€ avoided taking a chance with a less experienced vice-presidential candidate and felt no political need to push the historic nature of her candidacy by adding another woman or a minority to the ticket.
Candidate for Lt. Governor and state Senator, Â Bryce Reeves had this response to Hillary’s choice of Kaine,
â€œIn his desperate attempt to impress Hillary Clinton by embracing a liberal DC agenda, Tim Kaine joined the Bloomberg-led gun control movement in the Senate last month,â€Â said Reeves, who is a US Army Ranger veteran and former Prince William County detective.Â â€œVirginians would reject a Clinton-Kaine ticket because we value our Second Amendment right to self-defense, especially since we arenâ€™t entitled to the Secret Service protection Hillary Clinton receives.
â€There may be more issues with Hillary’s choice, such asÂ Kaine’s criticism of Obama’s Syrian policy which Kaine called ‘a joke’. Â Â Wasn’t Hillary Secretary of State when they instituted this policy? There’s also the issue of gifts Kaine accepted while Governor of Virginia.
