Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia to seek reelection

United States Senator and 2016 Vice Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine said recently that he will seek reelection in 2024. Given the lengthy two-year campaign and six-year term, Kaine had declined to declare his candidacy, but the Senator announced last week that he feels he has more to accomplish. At a press conference on Friday Kaine said, “I’m a servant. I love Virginia. I’m proud of what I’ve done. I’ve got a whole lot more I want to do.” Senator Kaine’s announcement comes as a relief to many in the Democratic party who were concerned about the upcoming election in the crucial swing state, especially considering the electoral success of Virginia’s Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin.
