Kaine Makes Campaign Stop in Data Center Alley

Originally posted to LoudonNow by Renss Green,

Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) launched his reelection campaign with a tour across the state this week, including a stop for a jobs roundtable at RagingWire Data Centers’ newest facility, VA3, in Ashburn.

“The theme of my campaign is a Virginia that works for all,” Kaine said. “And the pillars of the campaign are jobs for all, healthcare for all, education for all, security for all, equality for all.”

Kaine said when he joined the Senate Committee on Health, Education and Labor, there was little attention paid to career and technical education.
