Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on Hillary Clinton’s selection of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her vice presidential running mate:
“Secretary Clinton’s selection of Senator Tim Kaine demonstrates the sound judgment and thoughtful consideration she will bring to the White House. Through hard work and unimpeachable character, Tim Kaine has become a highly respected member of the Senate – among Democrats and Republicans alike. He will bring exceptional foreign and domestic policy experience to the vice presidency.
“As an invaluable member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, Senator Kaine is a leading voice in navigating the toughest international issues of our time. As a former governor and mayor – and throughout his time in the Senate – he’s proven he has what it takes to bring people together and fight for middle class Americans.
“The Clinton-Kaine ticket is everything the Trump-Pence ticket is not: competent, steady and committed to giving all Americans a fair shot to succeed. As Donald Trump continues to promote his platform of hate, discrimination and dysfunction, Secretary Clinton and Senator Kaine will offer their vision for a fairer, more equal America. The American people could not have a clearer choice. I will do everything in my power to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine to lead our nation forward.”
