Tim Kaine: Hillary Clinton’s running mate makes his debut in Miami

‘Tim Kaine is everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not’

The Clinton-Kaine ticket made its debut at a Miami, Florida, campaign event in the running mates’ first public appearance together since the Virginia senator was named the vice presidential pick.

Hillary Clinton announced Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate Friday evening after a long selection process. It had been speculated that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren or Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro were among the top picks who could have potentially energised the Clinton campaign.

“Senator Tim Kaine is everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not,” Ms Clinton said to cheers introducing Mr Kaine, describing him as a “leader who cares more about making a difference than making headlines”.

She further outlined the differences between the potential vice president, juxtaposing him to their Republican rivals.
