Tim Kaine Downplays Hillary VP Possibility

In an preview of an interview with CSPAN set to air in its entirety on Sunday, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) downplayed the possibility that he could be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s running mate in her general election match-up this fall.

“I was vetted for this spot back in ’08, and I love being mentioned but my gut was never saying ‘I think it’s going to be me,’  and I don’t feel that differently now,” Kaine said.

Kaine added he thought he could best serve Clinton by helping her win the state of Virginia, which he said was a battleground state.

“I think I can help her win, and I think I can help her win most by helping her win Virginia, and that’s what I am doing already,” he added.
