The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after Hillary Clinton selected Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her pick for Vice President:
"I am delighted that Hillary Clinton has chosen Virginia's Tim Kaine as her pick for Vice President - someone who is as experienced as he is kind. Tim Kaine is a true Virginian in every sense of the definition. He rose through the ranks from city council member, to mayor, to lieutenant governor, to governor, to U.S. senator- and he has never forgotten his Virginia roots or abandoned his progressive values. He has the respect of people from all political parties and more importantly, all walks of life.
"Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine will draw upon their experience to lead this country with sound judgment, statesmanship, and unwavering commitment to the hardworking families that define the fabric of America.
"Tim Kaine and Hillary Clinton know that we are stronger together. Americans need a partnership that will help our nation prosper by building upon the successes of the past 8 years and building an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. There's no path to the White House without Virginia and Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine will be an inspirational and unstoppable force in November."
