Latest Tim Kaine Items
Vice President Joseph R. Biden, campaigning in Virginia on Saturday, outlined the Obama administration's plans for a second term while taking a sharp jab at the Republican presidential ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
The U.S. Senate contest in Virginia between Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican George Allen is far and away the most expensive Senate race in the country in terms of third-party spending, underscoring the closeness of a race that's essentially been tied from the outset and its importance in determining which party will control the chamber come January.
Virginia Health Commissioner Karen Remley resigned her position Thursday over controversial abortion clinic regulations that have been a political lightning rod since the General Assembly passed legislation in 2011 directing the Board of Health to craft them.
George Allen and Tim Kaine, both former governors of Virginia, immediately tossed away their gloves in the final debate in their closely watched U.S. Senate race, throwing haymakers and lobbing charges that each is an immutable partisan and misguided on the economy, spending, and defense.
As Mitt Romney sank in the polls in September, so did the fortunes of many Republican Senate candidates, seemingly putting control of the upper chamber out of the party's reach.
Republican George Allen on Monday escalated his portrayal of Democratic Senate rival Tim Kaine as a would-be serial tax hiker and accused him of letting his attention drift away from Virginians during his final year as governor.
Tim Kaine is scared of his record on coal, and for good reason. As governor, he appointed an official Climate Change Commission and endorsed its recommendations, including draconian state-level restrictions on fossil fuel use. He testified on Capitol Hill in support of cap-and-trade energy taxes, which he continued to push enthusiastically when he became chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Now, with President Obama's war on coal in full swing, Mr. Kaine is styling himself pro-coal. Virginia voters shouldn't be fooled.
All eyes should be on the Old Dominion. In the past three presidential elections, Virginians have gone with the winning ticket in presidential balloting.
Who would have picked the buttoned-down Tim Kaine to make a stretch-run slip-up in Virginia's Senate race before gaffe-prone Republican George Allen?
