Timothy Michael "Tim" Kaine (born February 26, 1958) is a Virginia politician. Kaine served as the 70th Governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, and is the current chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was elected governor in 2005, after serving as Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and Mayor of Richmond, Virginia.

Kaine was considered a possible choice to be Barack Obama's running mate in 2008, but was not ultimately chosen.

On April 5, 2011, Kaine announced his candidacy for the United States Senate seat in Virginia being left open by the retiring Jim Webb in 2012 election after weeks of speculation.
