Senator Tim Kaine Wins Re-Election

RICHMOND, Va. (WVIR) -

Virginia Democrat Sen. Tim Kaine has dispatched a die-hard supporter of President Donald Trump to win re-election to the U.S. Senate.

Kaine defeated Republican Corey Stewart Tuesday.

The victory was widely expected as Kaine enjoyed large leads in most public polls and had a huge cash advantage.

Kaine is a former governor who was first elected to the Senate in 2012. He was Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016.

Stewart is a conservative provocateur best known for his outspoken support of Confederate imagery and hardline views on immigration. He struggled to raise money and was ignored by national GOP groups.
