Former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine stopped at Siips on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall Tuesday.

"I'm doing a bunch of events in Charlottesville, but a whole number of my friends are pulling folks together for a lunch. Talk a little bit about the campaign which I'm excited to do," said Kaine.

The U.S. Senate candidate is the front-runner for the Democratic party in 2012. However, he still has to beat out well known Republican George Allen to win the seat.

"My sense is this, there have been three polls in the last couple of weeks, and the polls have me either tied or slightly ahead. It is in 17 months, it's a long way away," said Kaine.

Kaine also spoke about his disappointment in New York Representative Anthony Weiner. Monday, the fellow Democrat admitted to lying about posting revealing online photos.

"Lying is unforgivable, public lying about something like this is unforgivable, he should resign," said Kaine.

Supporters spoke during Tuesday's lunch about some of Kaine's plans of action if elected.

"Tim's message was that the country has still got some huge challenges, which is obvious when you read the paper. It gives us really solid answers to take to those national challenges," said one supporter at Monday's event.

With month's of campaigning still ahead, Kaine says he does not intend to slow down.

"I feel really good about the team, I feel really good about the dynamic. I'm excited about our message," said Kaine. "America may have challenges, but Virginia has the answer."
