Former Virginia governor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine visited small business owners in Fort Hunt Wednesday morning as part of his campaign.
Kaine made stops at the Mount Vernon Farmers Market, Hollin Hall Automotive, Hollin Hall Pastry Shop, and the Variety Store, speaking with local business owners and constituents.
"At the gas station I learned what it's like to run a small business for 51 years," Kaine said of Hollin Hall Automotive. "It's a different kind of business than the one I opened with my dad. There are a lot of similarities in the number of employees and the hard work of Ruth, the owner, and her son Tom."
