    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., will speak at the University of Louisville April 1 as part of the McConnell Center’s Distinguished Speaker Series.

    Kaine was a vice presidential nominee for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and has served as a Virginia senator since 2012. Previously, he was Virginia’s lieutenant governor (2002-2006) and governor (2006-2010).

    He is a member of several committees including the Senate Committee on Armed Services; Senate Committee on Foreign Relations; Senate Committee on the Budget; and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.

    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, UofL President Neeli Bendapudi and McConnell Center Director Gary Gregg will join Kaine on stage.

    “At this important time in our history, it is a particular honor to host someone such as the 2016 U.S. vice presidential nominee, Tim Kaine,” Gregg said. “Senator Kaine brings experience at numerous levels of government as well as the unique perspective of being a candidate for the second highest office in the land.”
