Governor Tim Kaine Answers Rumors About Possible VP Slot

June 9, 2008

Governor Tim Kaine said if Senator Barack Obama offered him a spot on the Democratic ticket it would be hard for him to say no.

The Richmond Democrat was the first statewide official outside of Illinois to back Obama in this presidential campaign.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Kaine said can best serve the presumptive nominee by helping him win votes in Virginia and similar states across the country.

Other candidates rumored to be in the running for the Vice President position include New York Senator and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Virginia Senator Jim Webb.

On Sunday, Webb remarked that recent voting trends in the Commonwealth could help Obama take the state in the November Election.
