Kaine to Barnstorm the Commonwealth, Making Stops From Castlewood to Virginia Beach to Arlington

On Friday, September 21, Senator Tim Kaine will kick off a three-day campaign swing through Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Hampton Roads, Northern, Central, and Southwest Virginia as he continues to campaign in every corner of the Commonwealth, sharing his message of leaving no region behind in building a Virginia that works for all.

He will begin the swing with a breakfast event Friday in Lynchburg with ROSEL’s List and 5th and 6th District congressional candidates Leslie Cockburn and Jennifer Lewis. Kaine will then head to Charlottesville, where he will join the UVA Democrats and 5th District congressional candidate Leslie Cockburn for a pizza party. He will end the day with the Cosby High School Politics Club in Midlothian, where he will meet with and take questions from students, teachers, and community members.

Kaine will begin Saturday with mine workers, retired miners, and community members at the United Mine Workers Association (UMWA) District 17’s Annual Fish Fry in Castlewood. UMWA President Cecil Roberts will also be in attendance. In the afternoon, he will travel to Richmond to attend Virginia PrideFest, Virginia’s largest celebration of the Commonwealth’s LGBTQ community. In the evening, he will join 2nd District congressional candidate Elaine Luria and grassroots supporters at the Virginia Beach Democratic Committee’s Blue Wave Bash. On Sunday, Kaine will kick off a canvass in Williamsburg before concluding his campaign swing with Congressman Don Beyer at the Arlington Blue Families Potluck.

Media interested in attending any of these events should contact Kaine campaign press secretary Brandon Gassaway at [email protected].
