Kaine to Hit Campaign Trail for Obama
When Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) finishes his drive Tuesday to elect more Democrats to the Virginia General Assembly, he will turn his attention to next year's presidential race.
Earlier this year, Kaine became one of the first Democratic governors in the country to endorse Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill) presidential bid. In an interview on WTOP radio this morning, Kaine said he will be traveling to Iowa in mid-November to campaign for Obama.
Kaine will also hit the campaign trail for Obama around Christmas. Kaine said he is still optimistic about Obama's chances, even though several recent polls indicate Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) holds a big lead among Democratic voters nationwide. But Obama, Clinton and former Sen. John Edwards appear to be locked in a tight race in the crucial Iowa Democratic caucus Jan. 3.
Virginia's primary is Feb. 12.
