ANNE HOLTON CAMPAIGNS FOR KAINE IN SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA

Richmond, VA – Today, Anne Holton began her two-day swing across Southwest Virginia with a series of seven events to campaign for her husband, former governor and U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine.  Throughout the day, Holton rallied with voters across Southwest Virginia and shared Kaine’s strategies to responsibly reduce the deficit, create jobs, and strengthen the economy.

Holton spent the morning talking with voters in Salem and rallying supporters in Christiansburg and Pulaski.  Throughout the day, Holton outlined Kaine’s forward-thinking strategies to grow the economy and create jobs and encouraged supporters to get involved in the election.

“It is so inspiring to see so many of you here today ready to support Tim and talk to your friends and neighbors about his economic vision for Virginia,” said Holton. “Outside groups have already spent more than $21.5 million on false, negative advertisements attacking Tim, but I know that your hard work and support from now until Tuesday will make the difference for Tim on Election Day.”

Later in the day, Holton attended rallies in Wytheville, Marion, Abingdon, and Honaker where she highlighted Kaine’s strong record of working across the aisle to achieve results for Virginia families.  During his term, Kaine worked with members of both parties to cut more than $5 billion in spending and pass record investments in higher education, early childhood education, and workforce development.

“As governor during the worst recession since the Great Depression, Tim had to make some tough cuts to balance the budget, but he also left room for investments in key areas like education, health care, and infrastructure,” said Holton. “As our next senator, I know Tim will bring his bipartisan approach to Washington and continue to create jobs and strengthen our economy to move Virginia forward.”

Since the beginning of the year, Holton has traveled across the Commonwealth talking to voters to share Kaine’s Virginia-based strategies to create jobs and strengthen the economy for the long term.
