Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine to run for re-election in 2024

Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia announced Friday he will be running for a third term in office in 2024.

Kaine made the announcement Friday morning from the state capital, Richmond, after meeting with local business leaders and participating in a discussion on economic development.

‘I’m a servant. I love Virginia. I’m proud of what I’ve done,’ Kaine said in the announcement.

Kaine’s decision is a major relief for Democrats who have been pushing for him to run and avoid the uncertainty of a newcomer in the 2024 election.

While Democrats performed better than expected in the 2022 midterm elections, the 2024 election cycle – where Democrats will be defending seats in several battleground states – could have a far different outcome.

Democrats will be defending 23 of the 34 Senate seats up for grabs next cycle. Of their 23 seats up for election, seven are in states won by former President Trump in either 2016 or 2020. 

Republicans, however, will not be defending any seat in a state won by President Biden, unlike the 2022 midterms where the most competitive races were in states Biden won: Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
