Virginia Senate: Kaine ‘Increasingly Likely’ to Run

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine “told students at the University of Richmond Monday that he is ‘likely’ to run for Senate in Virginia,” CNN reports.

"In response to a student’s question, Governor Kaine told his law school class today what is already widely known which is that he is increasingly likely to run," said Brad Woodhouse, a DNC spokesman. "However, no final decision will be made or announced until the governor has had a final round of consultations with folks about how he can best serve the President, the people and the causes he cares about; he is assured that the Democratic Party will be in good hands should he choose to make the race and leave the DNC; he has the support that would be necessary to mount a successful campaign and he completes commitments for travel and fundraising he has made to the Party and the President through at least the end of the month."

Kaine, a former governor of the Commonwealth, has been considering running for the seat currently held by Sen. Jim Webb, D-Virginia. Webb recently announced that he would not seek a second term.
