Tim Kaine Campaigns in Cedar Rapids


Tim Kaine campaigned in Iowa today speaking at a rally in Cedar Rapids. During his first speech in the state since being announced as Clinton’s running mate, Kaine referenced his ties to the mid-west. He said, “I grew up in Kansas City and part of my family on my mom’s side is from Fort Madison, so as a kid, I used to come to Iowa for family. And I have dear friends in Maquoketa and Charles City and Des Moines.” He spoke about Hillary Clinton’s economic plan and how the new jobs created would benefit Iowans. Kaine attacked Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns calling him a tax dodger. He said that Clinton’s plans would ensure the wealthy pay their fair share and that everyone will have an equal opportunity to prosper in America. A video from the event is below.
