Gov. Kaine Statement on Obama Win
Statement of the Governor on Senator Barack Obama's Virginia Democratic Primary Win:
RICHMOND - I want to congratulate my friend Barack Obama on his win today in Virginia's Democratic primary. Both Senator Obama and Senator Clinton deserve credit for their hard work and their spirited campaigning across Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. We've fielded a tremendous group of Democratic candidates this year, and we should be proud of their incredible work.
Today, Virginia voters from across the Commonwealth came together around a message of hope and optimism. Today, voters showed confidence in Barack's ability to unite this country and transcend divisive Washington "politics-as-usual."
Barack Obama impressed me when I campaigned with him in 2005 and during Jim Webb's run in 2006. But, after having the unique opportunity to campaign for him across Virginia, I believe more than ever that Barack is the best candidate to unite our country and transform our politics in the cause of progress.
Virginians are results-oriented people. Their support and enthusiasm on the campaign trail and at the polls today is proof positive that folks are looking for meaningful change and looking to a leader focused on a more hopeful future.
Congratulations to Senator Obama on his decisive victory.
