Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine reacted to Donald Trump’s choice for the GOP ticket Sunday, telling NBC News he viewed Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s record as “anti-civil rights.”
Trump "is entitled to make his pick, so I don't really have any comments on it right now," Kaine said. "The only real way I know him is because of the controversy of his activities to really crack down on LGBT, and then that controversy, and the other things that I would kind of view as very anti-civil rights."
Kaine appeared with Hillary Clinton at a campaign rally for the first time since before the Virginia primary on Thursday. Many believed it was an audition for the role of her vice presidential pick.
He denied there were any conversations about the vice presidency. "Nope," he said. "We were talking about the rally and we were talking about Virginia."
