UVA Politics Class Hears from Tim Kaine

Posted: Updated:

A University of Virginia class now has a good idea of what it is like to be a senator. Professor Larry Sabato's Introduction to American Politics class heard from Senator Tim Kaine about his experience in politics.

Kaine, who also served as Virginia governor, reflected on his first few months in office.  He also discussed his first bill, the "Troop Talent Act." 

"The act is largely about credentials and helping folks while they are in the military, before they are veterans, get academic credit or civilian credentials for the skills that they are picking up along the way," Kaine said. 

Kaine also opened the floor to students who asked him questions about everything from foreign affairs to gun control.
