Senator Holds Town Hall Meeting on Twitter

July 17, 2013

Virginia Senator Tim Kaine answers questions from his constituents during his first Twitter town hall on Wednesday.

When asked about his stance on gay marriage in Virginia, Kaine said he originally opposed the 2006 ban on same-sex marriage in the state, and that he would support a repeal of that law.

Another tweet asked the senator about Amtrak service in the Commonwealth. Kaine mentioned that as governor, he expanded passenger train service to Lynchberg. He went on to say that he is meeting with Amtrak later in the day to discuss extending service to Roanoke, and then possibly to Bristol as well.

Senator Kaine also said he is working toward an end to the “sequester”, as well as reforming student loans.

The senator's Twitter screen name is SenKaineOffice.
