Kaine, Top VA Dems Not At Obama Town Hall

April 19, 2011

President Obama is in Annandale, Va., this morning for a town hall on reducing the nation's debt, but as the Washington Post points out, former Democratic National Committee Chairman and Senate candidate Tim Kaine and other prominent Democrats, including the state's two senators and the state party chairman, will not be around. Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) is attending, the Post reports. Obama is speaking at Northern Virginia Community College, which is in Connolly's district.

"[Gov.] Kaine has a full day of campaigning in another part of the state and won't be able to make this event, nor were we expecting to attend an event of this official capacity," a Kaine campaign source told Hotline On Call.

The distinction is worth noting: today's visit is not an official campaign event. But it is a reminder of the fact that Obama will be making many trips to the crucial swing state in the coming months, and as Republicans continue to deploy a strategy of tying Kaine to Obama, how often they appear together - and in what capacity -- will be worth keeping an eye on.
