Va. Gov. Kaine to Give Dem. Response After State of the Union

If this is true, I am very excited for Governor Kaine.  A wonderful moment for Virginia Democrats, and continued affirmation of Mark Warner's successful, hard work in Virginia.

RICHMOND, Jan.19 -- Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine has been tapped to give the Democratic Party's response to President Bush's State of the Union speech on Jan. 31, according to Capitol Hill sources.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are scheduled to call Kaine Thursday morning to officially ask him to accept. They, along with Gov. Bill Richardson, the chairman of the Democratic Governor's Association, are expected to make the announcement later this afternoon, according to two sources, who declined to be identified before the announcement is made.

Kaine spokeswoman Delacey Skinner declined to comment, saying no announcement has been made yet.

All right!
I've seen TK speak at an event, and he's great, very personable. This guy has a bright future, if he can continue in Mark Warner's footsteps.
