Vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine surprised staff and volunteers at a North Raleigh campaign office on Monday morning, showing up with a box of doughnuts.
Kaine is in North Carolina for events in Charlotte and Wilmington. He told the group in Raleigh that he would be wrapping up campaigning with a pair of events in Virginia, where Kaine is a U.S. senator and former governor.
“Here we are on the verge of Election Day and I think it’s going to be a history-making race,” Kaine said.
He was accompanied by his wife, Anne Holton, who is a state judge, and daughter, Annella. The traveling news corps and Secret Service agents crammed into the small office space of Millbrook Road.
Never miss a local story.
Kaine acknowledged North Carolina’s record number of early voters: “You knocked it out of the park.”
The Republican National Committee responded to the visit with this statement:
“Tomorrow, North Carolinians will head to the polls and show that they remained unpersuaded by Tim Kaine and his fellow Democrats’ final efforts to convince them that Hillary Clinton can be trusted to lead the nation. No matter how many miles Tim Kaine racks up, he can’t escape his running mate’s reckless decisions that have simply made it impossible for millions of voters to support her.”
