My Article in The Hill: “Why Kaine is the right choice for Clinton”


I wrote this piece (“Why Kaine is the right choice for Clinton“) earlier today for The Hill and they just posted it. Here’s an excerpt:

The selection of Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) as presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton‘s running mate has dismayed some liberals…who were hoping for a more progressive choice such as Sen.
