Kaine's Latest Fundraising Trips

Anita Kumar

We may not know when Gov. Tim Kaine is flying around the country for the DNC, but we are starting to get a better idea of when he is doing his in-state fundraising.

Tonight, Kaine attended at a fundraiser for Del. Chuck Caputo at the Centreville home of Steve and Lu Ann McNabb, friends of a family of a Tech student who died in the 2007 shootings.

Tomorrow night, he is expected at a fundraiser for Del. Joe Morrissey at Old City Bar in Richmond. Saturday afternoon, he will head to Virginia Beach for a barbeque with Sen. John Miller and a fundraiser for Del. Joe Bouchard.

No word on whether Kaine is heading out of state this week for DNC fundraising trips. As usual, we will let you know when we know.

Why is it important to let us know that the hosts of one of the fundraisers are "friends of a family of a Tech student who died in the 2007 shootings?" Does this somehow make the fundraiser more meaningful, or more important? I am sure that there are many families that are friends of families that died at Tech, and it doesn't seem relevant to the article to mention the connection in order to somehow inflate its importance. It seems to simply diminish the Tech tragedy to use it in such a fashion.
