Virginia's Junior U.S. Senator Kaine Kicks Off Re-Election Campaign

Virginia's junior U.S. Senator Tim Kaine is kicking off his official re-election campaign. He spoke with reporters in Richmond Monday afternoon. Even though it's his 10th time launching a campaign, a smiling and bright-eyed Senator Tim Kaine says he still has some of that nervous, excited energy, "If you don't have a little jitters, you should probably be doing something else." Kaine, who is seeking his second Senate term, is scheduled to hold a rally at the Maggie Walker Governor's school tonight. He says one big message of his campaign will be jobs - especially through infrastructure investments. Voters will decide in June which Republican Kaine will face for the Senate seat. Potential opponents include Corey Stewart who nearly won the Republican nomination for Governor last year; state delegate Nick Freitas and evangelical paster E.W. Jackson,
