Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine will speak in Taylor on Sunday. Originally scheduled to speak at UAW Region 1A, the event has been moved to Fire Station No. 1 (Midtown Goddard Road).
Doors will open at 2:15 p.m., with Kaine speaking at 4.

On July 22, 2016, Hillary Clinton announced that she had selected Kaine to be her vice presidential running mate in the 2016 presidential election, and the 2016 Democratic National Convention nominated him on July 27.
Before becoming Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Kaine served as a United States Senator from Virginia, elected in 2012.
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Kaine grew up in Overland Park, Kansas, graduated from the University of Missouri, and earned a law degree from Harvard Law School before entering private practice and becoming a lecturer at the University of Richmond School of Law.
He was first elected to public office in 1994, when he won a seat on the Richmond, Va., City Council. He was elected Mayor of Richmond in 1998, and served in that position until being elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in 2001.
Kaine was eventually elected Governor of Virginia (2006-10). He was chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2009-11.
