Virginia Senate: Kaine to Speak with President Obama

Former Virginia Democratic Governor Tim Kaine “is expected to speak with President Barack Obama in the next day or two before deciding whether to re-enter elective politics and run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democratic incumbent Jim Webb in 2012,” the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

In a brief conversation with the Richmond Times-Dispatch Tuesday morning, Kaine, Obama’s handpicked chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said he could discuss the issue with the president as early as today.

The former governor said he was "flattered" by the interest and support shown for him running for office, but said he needs to have additional discussions on the matter before making a decision.
