Congressman Ted Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement following the announcement by Secretary Clinton of Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate:
"With her choice of running mate, Hillary Clinton once again demonstrates her superb judgment and deepest commitment to an America that brings all of us together. As a missionary, civil rights lawyer, governor and senator, Tim Kaine's career of public service has been all about building bridges, not walls.
Tim Kaine stands for an America whose economy and education system works for everyone and his leadership on the fierce and urgent issue of taking care of our Veteran heroes has been second to none. Senator Kaine has led on numerous critical issues facing our nation: From tackling climate change to championing clean energy to fighting for comprehensive immigration reform. Tim Kaine will be the next Vice President of the United States and he will be a great one."
