Bill Clinton has made his feelings known about who he’s backing to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate. AOL reports that Clinton has come out in favor of Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.
Kaine is the former governor of Virginia, and a member of the Armed Services Committee, the report notes.
“Bill believes Kaine’s experience with both national and international relations will appeal to voters,” AOL reports. “He’s also confident Kaine would be prepared to take over as commander in chief if anything were to happen to Hillary.”
The report adds: “Though Bill states the choice is completely up to his wife, President Obama has also said he would support Kaine on the ticket. Kaine was on Obama’s VP shortlist in 2008 before he ultimately decided on Joe Biden.”
