Over ten years into his legal career, in 1994, he was elected to the city council of the independent city of Richmond from the portion of the city in which he resided under Richmond's system of nine wards. He would later be elected mayor of Richmond by the city council (which until 2004 chose the mayor from among its membership). He spent a total of seven years on the city council, including his time as mayor. The City of Richmond had been long notorious for having one of the highest murder rates in the United States. The trend had worsened greatly in the 1980s, and had continued into the 1990s. As mayor, Kaine was credited with helping to create and implement the gun law known as Project Exile.

Lieutenant Governor

In the Virginia general elections of November, 2001, Kaine ran for Lieutenant Governor, and won with 925,974 votes (50.35%)[4]. His opponents were Republican Jay Katzen with 883,886 votes, (48.06%), and Libertarian Gary Reams with 28,783 votes (1.57%). Kaine was inaugurated on January 12, 2002.

2005 Virginia election

In 2005, Kaine ran for and won the office of Governor of Virginia in the November general election, defeating Republican former Attorney General Jerry W. Kilgore by a margin of 52-46 percent. Kaine has said he will look to retain Warner's tax and educational policies, and keep the budget balanced, and soon launched a statewide series of town halls focused on transportation. The Virginia gubernatorial election of 2005 was a race for the Governor of Virginia, held on November 8, 2005. ...

An underdog for most of the race, Kaine overtook Kilgore in some polls for the first time in October 2005, and held his lead into the final week before the election[5]. While the previous Democratic Governor, Mark Warner was credited with doing especially well for a Democrat in rural areas of the commonwealth, Kaine's win featured surprising triumphs in traditionally Republican exurbs like Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Prince William County and Loudoun County in Northern Virginia as well as impressive showings in Democratic strongholds like Richmond and Norfolk.[6] Mark Robert Warner (born December 15, 1954) is an American politician from the U.S. state of Virginia and a member of the Democratic Party. ...

Kaine closely associated himself with popular outgoing Democratic Governor Mark Warner during his campaign, and won his race by a slightly larger margin than Warner. He promised homeowner tax relief, and centrist fiscal leadership but also proposed a large-budget program guaranteeing pre-kindergarten education for any family that wants it. A number of factors, from the sagging poll numbers of President George W. Bush to a public disgust over the death penalty ads run by Kilgore have also been cited as key to his decisive win.[7][8] Kaine was inaugurated in Williamsburg on January 14, 2006. This makes Kaine the first Governor since Thomas Jefferson (in 1779) to be inaugurated in Virginia's colonial capital. Virginia's Capitol in Richmond was under renovation at the time, with the process completed in mid-2007.

In March of 2006, after the General Assembly failed to create a budget, Governor Kaine called for a special session that didn't end until June. The debate was over Transportation issues and how to fund current and new projects. Most of the debate came from a battle within the Republican controlled Senate and House of Delegates. In 2007, Kaine heavily amended and signed into law a transportation funding and planning plan designed and shepherded through the General Assembly by the Republican Speaker of the House, William Howell.


On May 23, 2007, the Roanoke Times and other Virginia newspapers reported that the Kaine Administration was running a $300 million budget deficit. Kaine reportedly instructed agency heads to reduce spending. On August 2, 2007, the Washington Post reported that the Kaine Administration conceded publicly that the state's budget would run a shortfall in future years. The Post quoted Kaine's spokesman Kevin Hall: "We acknowledge -- heck, everybody does -- that the 2008-2010 budget period will feature slower growth than anticipated." On the same day, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that "The Kaine administration is expecting a shortfall in the 2008-2010 biennium but will not make it public until Aug. 20 [2007]."


In June 2006, Kaine signed an executive order banning smoking in all government buildings and state-owned cars.[9] He also announced that Virginia will be the first state in the Union to digitize records from the Civil War Era Freedman's Bureau. This will open up research in African-American history after the Civil War.[10]


In May 2006, Governor Kaine announced his plan to conserve 400,000 acres (1,600 km²) of Virginia real property from development before the end of his administration as Governor of Virginia.[11] The Commonwealth of Virginia's landowners favor land conservation although Virginia lags behind other state's per capita expenditures on land conservation. [1] As of 2007, according to government statistics, Florida spends $25 per capita on land conservation. Maryland spends $21. North Carolina spends $4.35. Virginia spends $1.45[12]. Only 12% of Virginia's lands are currently protected at the federal, state, or local levels.[13].


In the 2006 elections, Kaine supported Democratic Senate candidate Jim Webb.[14] Kaine also opposed an amendment to the Virginia Constitution that would define marriage as that between one man and one woman, though he has publicly stated that he personally opposes same-sex marriage.[15] For other persons named James Webb, see James Webb (disambiguation). ...


Tim Kaine has given his support for the mandatory vaccinating of 6th grade girls in Virginia with the HPV vaccine and has recently signed a bill to that effect. He has dismissed all criticism, saying that the broad opt-out provision in the bill should resolve all of the concerns.[16] Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is a vaccine that targets certain sexually transmitted strains of human papillomavirus that are associated with the development of cervical cancer and genital warts. ...


Death penalty stance

Despite his personal opposition to capital punishment, often cited during the campaign by both sides, he has so far overseen four executions as governor as of November 2006. Before he was Governor he had spoken in favor of declaring a moratorium on the death penalty "until it's fair."[17] Death penalty, death sentence, and execution redirect here. ...


He has vetoed five death penalty expansion bills although some of the vetoes were overturned.[18], and opposed electric chair as an option[19]. The electric chair is an execution method in which the person being put to death is strapped to a chair and electrocuted through electrodes placed on the body. ...


Abortion Stance

Tim Kaine has stated he has a "faith based opposition to abortion." He also supports promoting abstinence and opposes partial-birth abortion.Tim Kaine is a member of Democrats For Life of America. Partial-birth abortion (PBA) is a non-medical term used to refer to some late-term abortion procedures. ... This article is about the political organization. ...

When news of the Virginia Tech Massacre broke, Kaine aborted a trade mission to Japan and India to attend to the situation. In a convocation speech given on no rest after flying back from Tokyo, Kaine said he would appoint a panel of independent law enforcement officials to examine what the university knew about the Korean student responsible for the massacre, which killed 32 people. The commission led by a former state police chief and former governor and homeland security secretary Tom Ridge began work on April 28th, and issued their findings and recommendations on August 30, 2007. On April 30, Governor Kaine signed an executive order instructing state agencies to step up efforts to block gun sales to people involuntarily committed to inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment centers.[20] Appearing alongside Attorney General Bob McDonnell (R), Kaine said the order will help prevent people like the shooter from legally obtaining firearms in the future.

Vice Presidential speculation

According to The Washington Post, Kaine has endorsed, and strongly supports, the 2008 presidential campaign of Democratic U.S. Senator Barack Obama. Kaine's endorsement was claimed to be the first from an elected official outside of Illinois to endorse Obama's bid[21]. As a popular and successful governor of a southern state, Kaine might be a choice for vice-president if Obama wins the Democratic nomination[22].

Dulles Airport Metro controversy

In July 2007, The Washington Post and Associated Press reported that, according to an Inspector General's Report from the U.S. Department of Transportation, costs to construct the first phase of the Dulles Rail project had increased from $1.52 billion in December 2004 to $2.7 billion, due to delays in starting the project. One delay, the report noted, stemmed from the Kaine Administration's study of an underground rail alternative in 2006. Although citizens and businesses preferred the underground option, Kaine eventually decided to proceed with an elevated rail. The report also warned that the project barely qualified for federal funding when its projected cost was $2.1 billion. In order to secure federal funding, Kaine in 2006 scrapped a plan that would have the Washington Metro go underground via a tunnel in Tysons Corner in favor of a cheaper, above-ground option. Numerous government agencies have studied the tunnel proposal, and Republican state lawmakers have tied up Kaine's transportation budget until federal funding is secured. The future Silver Line will be an extension of the Washington Metro subway system consisting of 29 subway stations from Route 772 in Loudoun County to Stadium-Armory in Washington, D.C. The line will have stations in Loudoun, Fairfax, and Arlington counties in Virginia, and the District of Columbia. ...

Tim Kaine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (648 words)
Kaine, whose father was an iron worker and welder, grew up in the Kansas City area and graduated from Rockhurst High School, the University of Missouri and Harvard Law School, taking a year-long absence during law school to work with Catholic missionaries in Honduras.
In 2005, Kaine ran for and won the seat of Governor of Virginia in the November general election, defeating Republican former Attorney General Jerry W. Kilgore by a margin of 52% to 46%; Republican State Senator Russ Potts, who ran as an independent and was considered a longshot, garnered only 2% of the vote.
Kaine's campaign made his association with highly popular outgoing Democratic Governor Mark Warner its central theme, as well as promising homeowner tax relief, centrist fiscal leadership, and a guarantee of pre-kindergarten education for any family that wants it.
