Opinion | Tim Kaine for U.S. Senate
DEMOCRAT Tim Kaine and his Republican challenger, Corey A. Stewart, are rivals for the same U.S. Senate seat in…
Senator Kaine “is a credit to Virginia and to the Senate. Mr. Stewart, who has smeared “establishment pukes” of his own party and made good on his promise to run a “vicious” campaign for the Senate, is a disgrace. We endorse Mr. Kaine.”

“Lavangelene “Vangie” Williams says she is a strategic planner, mother and professional problem solver. A self-made woman who has overcome insurmountable odds, Williams is a public servant who solves problems for our federal government. A real-world professional with 30 years of experience, she is not a career politician who will put corporate interests above people. William currently works full time for a major government contractor as a strategic planner/senior project control principal.”
