The Wait Is Over: Tim Kaine Is Running for Senate


It isn’t much of a surprise at this point, but after months of mulling, former Virginia governor and DNC chairman Tim Kaine has officially announced that he’ll run for retiring Democratic senator Jim Webb’s Virginia seat in 2012 (possibly against former senator George “Macaca” Allen, if he becomes the GOP nominee). Taking Kaine’s place at the DNC will be fourth-term Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. [Politico, Politico]
