Kaine's Weekend Travel and More

Anita Kumar

View Kaine's Travel Adventures in a larger map. KEY: Blue markers are DNC trips, red markers are official state trips, and purple markers included a mix of both or are unclear at this time.

Gov. Tim Kaine will jet off to posh Martha's Vineyard tomorrow morning as part of his job as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He will return from the island Sunday night.

In keeping with his recent promise to reveal his whereabouts (which came after pressure by the media and others to tell us where he spends his time), Kaine's office released his travels for the second half of July this evening.

His out-of-state travel included trips to San Francisco (July 25-26), Seattle (July 26-27), Portland (July 27) and Chicago (July 28-29.) He also reported spending part of July 25 in Washington. The trips were taken in a time period that spanned Wednesday to Saturday.

Much of the out-of-state travel was likely for DNC business but may have been in his role as governor or for both jobs. The travel log does not indicate the purpose of the trips.

Kaine said in a recent interview that he spends about a day and a half of each workweek handling fundraising and policy matters for the DNC. That includes out-of-state trips and time spent working at DNC headquarters in Washington.

In the month of July, Kaine reported traveling to eight other states and spending part of four days in Washington.
