kaineWASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton says she’s picked Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine to join her on the Democratic ticket as their party’s nominee for vice president.

She revealed her choice this evening in a text message to supporters.

Kaine is expected to join Clinton at a rally in Florida tomorrow. He’s the former governor of the battleground state of Virginia and former mayor of Richmond.

A favorite since the start of Clinton’s search for a running mate, Kaine is a former governor of the battleground state and former mayor of Richmond.

Kaine won election to the Senate four years ago after serving as the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Clinton is choosing Kaine from a group that included Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
