Fairfax Debate: Kaine offers Positive Vision for the Future
Richmond, VA - Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman Brian Moran released the following statement in response to today's U.S. Senate debate between Governor Tim Kaine and former Senator George Allen in Tyson's Corner:
"This afternoon Governor Kaine clearly demonstrated why we need his representation in the United States Senate. By emphasizing results and specifics over the partisan bickering and gridlock that have seized Washington, Kaine set himself apart from his opponent George Allen and offered the Commonwealth a vision of government that works for us all.
"It's a shame that Allen entered today's debate with so few specifics about how he would create jobs while reducing the deficit, and that he continued to refuse to take accountability for the six years he spent in the Senate turning a huge surplus into a massive deficit and voting against the Family Medical Leave Act and veterans' health care.
"Virginians need a Senator who will put results for our families ahead of tired partisan rhetoric and the same old ideas that damaged our economy and busted the budget. I was honored to watch today as Tim Kaine put forward a positive vision to move our country forward that could not be more different from his opponent's broken record and empty rhetoric."
