Kaine To Speak With Obama About Webb's Seat

It appears that Kaine has not completely made up his mind about running for the U.S. Senate, according to this piece in Roll Call Politics:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine expects to speak with President Barack Obama this week about entering the race to succeed Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), Kaine told the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Tuesday.

But Kaine told the newspaper Tuesday that he was “flattered” by the support he has received about running. He said further discussions are in order before he makes up his mind.
Stay tuned.  Gun owners would have clear choice between a Kaine/Allen match-up.  Kaine twice vetoed the repeal of the "Restaurant Ban."  George Allen signed concealed carry reform as governor and was a reliable vote for pro-rights bills as a member of the U.S. Senate.

Remember this!!

Back in 2000 when Tim Kaine was mayor of Richmond, he approved spending nearly $10,000 in taxpayer money to send busloads of anti-gunners from Richmond to DC for the Million Mom March.

The Million Mom March was a mass protest complaining that congress had failed to enact "meaningful gun laws".

With all of Webb's faults, he generally supported our gun rights. Having Tim Kaine seated in the US Senate would be a major setback in protecting our rights.
