OUR LO­CAL RACES

Sen. Tim Kaine on his plans for in­volve­ment in this year’s Con­gres­sional races:

➤ EN­DORS­ING: “I will not en­dorse in pri­maries. I make an ex­cep­tion in pres­i­den­tial, be­cause some­times a pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is a way to make your state rel­e­vant in the gen­eral, but when it comes to races in Vir­ginia, I pretty much know any­body. I’ve re­cruited them and helped them and they’ve helped me.”

➤ CAM­PAIGN­ING: “My at­ti­tude is, I will run with my team. But I will not say neg­a­tive things about Repub­li­can in­cum­bents. That’s how I did it as gover­nor. If I was try­ing to help win the state se­nate in 2007, and we did win, I said a lot of good things about the Democrats I was help­ing, but I didn’t say neg­a­tive things about the Repub­li­cans they were run­ning against be­cause I have re­la­tion­ships with our mem­bers of Congress.”
