Senator Kaine’s comments elicited applause from more than 2-thousand attendees including 59 year old Sharon Hill, who believes the country needs an experienced woman at the helm.

“This will be the hardest speech that I have to give during the entire campaign. This speech is harder. How do I sum up and then give thanks for 32 years of friendship in RVA? Very Very hard.”

Kaine was enthusiastically received by friends and supporters, some holding signs that read “We heart Tim” and “America’s Dad.”
