As the race for the 2012 presidential election heats up, another campaign is going strong in Virginia. Sen. Webb chose not to run for re-election to the Senate, leaving the seat open for new blood. Former Govs. George Allen and Timothy Kaine are battling it out to work in Washington, D.C. alongside current Senator Mark Warner. Kaine’s campaign is garnering a mass of support as he holds rallies in Virginia.
Senior Jake Evans, who is chairman for the York-Poquoson Democratic Committee, is working to spread the campaign to Christopher Newport University’s campus. He said that he was contacted by the committee to join the campaign.
“With Tim Kaine it was easy to say yes. He’s awesome. Especially as a college student, to not support Time Kaine would be crazy in my mind,” said Evans. “He’s the only one—between him and George Allen—that’s fought for higher education. It makes it easy.”
