Kaine Endorses Obama; Hits Campaign Trail

February 9, 2008

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine is spending the weekend campaigning for Barack Obama, wagering some of his political capital on the Democratic presidential prospect.

Kaine is working nights and weekends for the Illinois senator before Virginia and its mid-Atlantic neighbors vote in Tuesday's primaries.

The governor endorsed Obama a year ago, becoming the first governor outside Obama's home state to do so. Kaine has traveled to Iowa and other states to campaign for him.

Kaine is under fire from Republican legislators who say he's ignoring the state's fiscal woes to play presidential politics.

The governor dismissed the criticisms in an interview Saturday. He says he spends his working hours on state business and will revise the state's revenue forecast next week.
