Democratic National Convention

Tim Kaine officially nominated as Democratic VP candidate

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) was formally nominated as the Democratic Party's vice presidential candidate at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday afternoon. Kaine, who Hillary Clinton announced as her running mate last week, won the nomination by acclamation. If Clinton wins the election, Kaine will be the first vice president from Virginia since 1841.

Kaine is set to address the convention for the first time as the party's vice presidential candidate later Wednesday evening.
