Virginia No Longer Red, Kaine Says
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) said today he has high hopes for Democrats this fall as they seek to regain the state Senate and make inroads in the House of Delegates.
In an interview on WTOP radio, Kaine declined to predict how many Senate and House seats he expects the Democrats to pick up in the Nov. 6 election. But Kaine said the election will prove Virginia is no longer "a super red state."
"It's a competitive state and I believe the results of this year's elections are going to be prove that," said Kaine, who is expected to raise $1 million for his political action committee at an event tonight in Pentagon City. "You don't want to live in a place where one party is given too much control."
Despite his confidence, Kaine said plans to spend the next month "fighting like an underdog" to help Democratic candidates.
