David Catanese is reporting on U.S. News and World Report that Senator Kaine will be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president while he is in South Carolina this weekend. This endorsement comes 21 months before the election, which is pretty wild. Tim Kaine has a penchant for early endorsements. He was one of the first elected officials to endorse Barack Obama in 2008.
Apparently Kaine has no issues with Hillary’s involvement in Benghazi. Kaine told Bloomberg last year, “I do not think it’s a scandal. It could be an embarrassment.” He went on to say that he didn’t think it would hurt Hillary’s changes if she decided to run for president.
It is shameful when you call the unnecessary death of our brave military men simply an “embarrassment.” Clinton didn’t think it was a big deal either, so I guess they are two peas in a pod.
