WASHINGTON, July 23. /TASS/. Hillary Clinton has chosen Virginia Democrat, Senator Tim Kaine as a candidate for the US Vice President.
"I am thrilled to announce my running mate, Tim Kaine, a man who's devoted his life to fighting for others," she said.
"I enthusiastically applaud Secretary Clinton’s choice," Warner said. "Without reservation, I can say there is no one of higher integrity and trustworthiness. I first met Tim Kaine in law school 37 years ago, and our paths crossed years later in Virginia politics. Whether serving as mayor of Richmond, Virginia’s lieutenant governor, governor, and now as U.S. senator, Tim has always shown a commitment to serving others," according to the statement released by Virginia senator Mark Warner on Clinton’s choice.
Clinton and Kaine are expected to speak at a campaign rally in Miami before the Democratic Convention begins in Philadelphia.
