2016 Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee



Current U.S. Senator and former Governor from Virginia

Timothy Michael Kaine
Born: February 26th, 1958  (age 58)
As a child growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, young Timothy would spend his weekends in his father’s iron-working shop while other kids in the neighborhood were busy acting their age. On Sundays, the Catholic family, without fail, would attend evening mass at 9 p.m. A decade later, Timothy Michael Kaine took a year off from Harvard Law School to join a Jesuit mission in El Progreso, Honduras to teach carpentry to youths. He would cycle to villages in the area to recruit students to the mission’s vocational center.

When the gangly, curly-haired young man returned to Harvard, he caught the eye of freshman Anne Holton, daughter of former Governor of Virginia, A. Linwood Holton Jr. The couple moved to Richmond, Virginia after graduation and married in 1984 immediately after he was admitted to the bar. Senator Kaine quickly established a reputation as a lawyer who was sensitive to social justice issues, and before long, he started his own practice, which would go on to specialize on fair housing laws. By 1989, a 31-year-old Sen. Kaine was appointed an adjunct professor at the University of Richmond.

The call of public service compelled him to seek a seat on the city council. He did so in 1994, and four years later, the economics and law graduate was elected Mayor of Richmond. In 2001, Sen. Kaine ran for Lt. Governor of Virginia and won a fiercely-contested race against Republican Jay K. Katzen. In a strange twist of fate, Sen. Kaine was sworn in by his wife Anne, who was then a Judge on the state’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

He went a step further in 2005 when he ran for and won the governorship, making him the 70th Governor of Virginia. Virginia limits its governors to a single term in office, so Sen. Kaine left the office of governor in 2010. The following year, Sen. Kaine announced his intention to contest for the state’s soon-to-be vacant U.S. Senate seat, and subsequently, comfortably won the election in 2012.

Quiet and reserved by nature, Sen, Kaine has never been known as a flashy progressive. Instead, the fluent Spanish speaker is a pragmatic operator who gets things done by building bridges and developing coalitions, often across the aisle. With extensive private, executive and legislative experience under his belt, Sen. Kaine is poised for greater things in national politics. Perhaps, as the next Vice President of the United States?
