Kaine Will Not Announce This Weekend


    According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

    Former Virginia Gov. and current Democratic National Committee chairman Timothy M. Kaine will not announce whether he intends to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Jim Webb until later in the month or early next month, a DNC official said Thursday.

    Brad Woodhouse, communications director for the DNC, said that Kaine will discuss the vacancy at Saturday’s Jefferson-Jackson Democratic fundraiser in Richmond and thank the many supporters who have encouraged him to run. Then he will take more time to consult with his wife and family.

    In other words, enjoy the JJ Dinner, but it looks like there won’t be any big news coming out of Richmond this weekend.
