WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Democratic National Committee on Sunday said he thinks the chances that President Obama will face a serious primary challenger in 2012 are “virtually nil.”

Former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, now DNC chairman, said there’s always the possibility that a fringe candidate could try to mount a challenge. But Mr. Kaine said Democrats feel very good about Mr. Obama’s re-election prospects if, as Mr. Kaine put it, the president keeps doing the job that people elected him to do.

Mr. Kaine also told CNN’s “State of the Union” that he expects to continue as party chairman for another two-year term.
