Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is urging men to “stand and support strong women leaders” in the presidential election.
Kaine says the United States has lagged other countries in electing women political leaders. But the Democratic vice presidential nominee says the country has “an opportunity to do something magnificent” in electing Hillary Clinton as the first woman president.
Kaine is speaking at a breakfast with delegates from his home state, one of the country’s most important general election battlegrounds. He’s set to address the Democratic convention Wednesday night. Kaine cast the contest between Clinton and Republican Donald Trump as a choice between building a “community of respect” or embracing “the politics of division.”
