Earlier this afternoon, Tim Kaine announced his candidacy for the open U.S. Senate seat in Virginia. In a video, Governor Kaine said "I'm running for the United States Senate because America has big challenges, and I'm convinced that Virginia has answers to help strengthen our nation."
As governor, I helped lead Virginia through the toughest economy in seventy years. We cut billions from the state budget, tightened our belt, and made government more efficient. We also invested in key priorities like education, Rail to Dulles, cleaning the Bay, and saving open space. We recruited companies like Ikea, Volkswagen, Hilton, Mead-Westvaco, and Rolls Royce to Virginia and were named America's Best Managed State, Best State for Business, and the Best State to Raise a Child.
