From the Kaine campaign:
Richmond, VA – Today, Tim Kaine released a new television ad featuring fellow former governor and current U.S. Senator Mark Warner. The ad, “Great Team,” highlights the work Kaine and Warner did to bring both parties together to move Virginia forward and promote fiscal responsibility in the Commonwealth.
“We were a great team in Richmond,” Warner says in the thirty second ad as he walks in front of the capitol building in Richmond, referencing the work he and Kaine did over nearly a decade to improve business friendliness, recruit companies to the Commonwealth, invest in educating Virginia's workers, and make tough fiscal decisions to balance the budget.
“And we'll be a great team in Washington,” Kaine continues. Both Kaine and Warner have endorsed a balanced, bipartisan approach to responsibly reduce the federal budget deficit that makes significant cuts but also leaves room for investments in education, infrastructure, and other key areas to grow the economy and create jobs.
WATCH: “GREAT TEAM“
“I'm proud to have Mark's strong support. He knows we need more senators who have a proven track record of reaching across the aisle, listening, finding compromise and getting results,” said Kaine. “The lessons I learned working with Mark when I was Lieutenant Governor helped me immeasurably as I led Virginia through the worst recession since the Great Depression. Just as we've been partners in the past to make sure Virginia leads the nation in so many ways, we will be great partners in the Senate as we find common sense solutions to fix our budget and create jobs.”
“Tim is exactly the kind of problem solver we need in the U.S. Senate. Virginia made great strides under his leadership during the worst national recession in 70 years, winning accolades like Best State for Business, Best Managed State, and best state to raise a child,” said Warner. “I couldn't be more proud to support Tim's campaign and look forward to having his bipartisan approach in Washington to help tackle the challenges we face.”
During this campaign, Kaine and Warner have hosted economic events and conversations across the state including at the Port of Virginia in Hampton Roads, an energy startup in Northern Virginia, and a defense contractor in Fredericksburg. “Great Team” is the latest television ad released by Kaine and will run in markets across the Commonwealth. Support from more than 40,000 donors has allowed Kaine for Virginia to purchase $7.5 million in advertising for the fall campaign.
