Tim Kaine for Virginia Senate
“Today I have the first debate of my Senate re-election race.
I’ve debated a lot in my career – in the courtroom as a civil rights lawyer on behalf of my clients, in meetings with legislators when I was Governor and trying to improve our economy, and advocating for the best policies for voters over and over again in my 2001, 2005, 2012 and 2016 campaigns.
Every time, my focus has been on helping people and making things fairer. This time won’t be any different. Now more than ever, we need to stand strong in our commitment to making Virginia and our country work for everyone. Today, I intend to talk about the issues important to Virginians and about the spirit of inclusivity that makes our nation great.
In this debate, I’m going to defend our values: that every Virginian should have access to a good job, health care and education, that families belong together, that the Supreme Court should reflect the wishes of the American people, and that women should be free to make their own health care choices.
Today I will stand with veterans, with women, with workers, with everyone in search of a fair shot in Virginia. ” Tim Kaine
