Kaine Sings. Yes, Really.

Anita Kumar

Gov. Tim Kaine played the harmonica and sang a couple songs last night in front of a few hundred people at his last fundraiser for his political action committee.

A casually dressed Kaine was joined by Boyd Tinsley, a violinist with the Dave Matthews Band, on stage in the park outside the historic Maymont house in Richmond.

The event raised $250,000 for Kaine's PAC, Moving Virginia Forward. Kaine also hosted an exclusive dinner for about 80, who paid at least $1,000.

Kaine told the guests, who were sipping on beer and wine, that the fundraiser would be the last for Moving Virginia Forward. He said he would continue to raise money for the rest of the year, but for the Democratic National Committee and individual candidates.

Guests included two of the men who want to replace him, R. Creigh Deeds and Terry McAuliffe, former governor L. Douglas Wilder, U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott and several legislators and candidates for the House of Delegates.
