Incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Corey Stewart recently held their second debate for the U.S. Senate.
Stewart is a big supporter of President Trump and repeatedly accused Kaine of being an unrelenting opponent of the president’s agenda, especially when it comes to defense.

Corey Stewart's claim that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine opposes Trump on every issue is rated “Mostly True.”
