Kaine: “A little old nobody, trying to help everybody.”
Governor Tim Kaine chose to not address the rumors that a Democratic member of the Virginia Senate was poised to vote with the Republicans, and as a result tipping the balance of power into GOP hands.
Today the Governor was asked about it and decided to avoid the topic. Here is the transcript of the exchange.
REPORTER: “Can you tell us anything about your conversations with Sen. Northum yesterday?”
KAINE: “I think that is a Senate matter and I am going to leave that for the Senate.
ANITA KUMAR (Washington Post): “If it was a Senate matter than why did you get involved?”
KAINE: (with a smile on his face) “Because you know, I think people think of me as just a little old nobody who is trying to help everybody.”
At that point another question was asked on a different topic. I am working to get video of the exchange up.
