Sen. Tim Kaine officially stepped into the national spotlight last night and introduced himself to the nation as a Hillary Clinton's choice for Vice President.


Kaine's nomination was first met by a lack of enthusiasm by some in the Democratic Party. While some point out that while Kaine may not be the most exhilarating personality, (the internet had it's fun with the dad jokes during his speech) others describe him as a steady champion on issues important to African Americans.

Though some have brought up the infamous "Project Exile" program Kaine had a hand in as Mayor of Richmond, many point out his work as a civil rights attorney. Work that dates back decades.

Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton, have been parishioners of St. Elizabeth’s Roman Catholic Church in what is described as a “poor predominantly black working-class neighborhood in Richmond, Va.” since the early ‘80s. Kaine has been a practicing Catholic for his entire life, and his faith is a pillar in his life.


According to NBC News, the senator returned to the church for a recent Sunday mass after being named as Hillary Clinton’s running mate and told reporters about his introduction to St. E’s:
