Kaine to Commence College Campus Tour

This week, Senator Tim Kaine will launch a campaign swing aimed at energizing young voters and boosting youth turnout in advance of the November 6 midterm elections. Beginning on Wednesday, October 24, Kaine will make at least eight stops at college campuses across the Commonwealth to encourage young people to both vote and engage in on-the-ground Get-out-the-Vote efforts including knocking on doors, phone, and text banking to mobilize voters.

Kaine will begin the swing on Wednesday by launching a canvassing event on the campus of the University of Virginia. On Friday, he will join a lunchtime text bank in Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University, before attending the football game between Old Dominion University and Middle Tennessee State University in Norfolk on Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday, Kaine will travel to Harrisonburg to launch a Get-out-the-Vote event with James Madison University students, before kicking off a canvass at Radford University and joining a text bank at Virginia Tech on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, Kaine will join college Democrats in the Lynchburg area for breakfast before concluding the swing back at the campus of the University of Virginia, where he will join students and supporters at a text bank in the evening.

Media interested in attending these events should contact Kaine campaign press secretary Brandon Gassaway at brandon@timkaine.com.
