Current Senate Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Senator Kaine thought he would be Vice-President of the United States at this time. Instead, he’s a solid favorite for re-election to the Senate. He’s got more than $9 million cash on hand and had to be encouraged by the Democratic turnout in the 2017 Governor’s race. A big margin of victory by Kaine could boost the Dems in both Congressional and state legislative races.
