U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine held a roundtable discussion with Virginia women small business leaders on Friday about his strategies for creating jobs and strengthening the economy.
At Palio Ristorante in Leesburg, Kaine outlined his economic vision of creating jobs by leveling the playing field for small businesses, investing in infrastructure and brainpower, and bringing more balance to our fiscal challenges and political system.
"Our nation can learn some powerful economic lessons from Virginia," Kaine said. "Once we embraced talent and built up the infrastructure to develop that talent, like community colleges and other forms of higher education, our economy raced ahead. If we invest in our nation's infrastructure and brainpower we will create jobs immediately and strengthen our economy over the long term."
