Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) issued the following statement on Senator Tim Kaine's selection as Hillary Clinton's Vice Presidential running mate.
"Senator Tim Kaine is an honorable public servant. Even though we disagree on policy and principle, I respect him. His character makes it all the more surprising that he would sign up to defend Hillary Clinton for the next three and a half months. However, Senator Kaine's selection as the Vice Presidential nominee does not change that this election is ultimately a referendum on Secretary Clinton. Virginians will cast their vote based on her record as Secretary of State, objectionable character, and far-left agenda."
