Kaine's November travel
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, who serves as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, scaled back his out-of-state travel last month, spending a third of the days in November out of Virginia, including six weekdays.
Kaine spent all or part of 10 days outside the state, taking trips to five other states and five trips to Washington, where he sometimes works out of DNC headquarters.
Kaine's office released his travels for November in keeping with his pledge to do so at the end of each month, which was made following pressure by the media and others to disclose his whereabouts.
His out-of-state travel included trips to Baltimore (Thurs. Nov. 5), Memphis (Wed. Nov. 11-Thurs. Nov. 12), Little Rock (Thurs. Nov. 12), New York (Thurs. Nov. 19) and Arlington, Texas (Sat. Nov. 21-Sun. Nov. 22) He also reported spending part of four weekdays and one weekend in Washington.
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, but we know he was headlining a fundraiser in Arkansas when Virginia was hit by a storm and parts of the state flooded.
In June, Kaine traveled for the DNC half of the days. In July, he traveled to eight other states, while spending part of four days in Washington. Kaine significantly limited his out-of-state travel in August, traveling to five states and spending only part of one day in Washington. But his travel increased in September and October when he reported spending all or part of 12 days and 14 days out of the state.
