Enough of the Trump trainwreck...let's check in with Tim!
Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine strolled the Iowa State Fairgrounds in a surprise visit to Des Moines Wednesday, chatting up Iowans, checking out the butter cow and wolfing down a chop at the Iowa Pork Producers Association tent.
He was joined on his meander by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack — the former Iowa governor who Clinton strongly considered for the spot on the presidential ticket she ultimately gave to Kaine.
“She made the right choice,” Vilsack said with Kaine at his side and between bites of pork chop underneath the awning at the pork tent.
Tim Kaine went to Iowa and met a guy dressed like Abraham Lincoln. You're welcome. https://t.co/03oKHvPbrR pic.twitter.com/R3HLFdksVF— Amanda Litman (@amandalitman) August 19, 2016
