Republican reaction was swift Friday to Hillary Clinton's choice of Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine as her running mate, with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus saying that the first-term senator "does nothing to unify a fractured Democrat base which is repelled by her dishonesty and cronyism."

"After spending last week pandering to grassroots Democrats with Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton has chosen someone who holds positions that she's spent the entire primary trying to get to the left of," Priebus said in a statement released within minutes of Clinton's announcement on Twitter.

"Ultimately, this is a ticket that represents one thing: four more years like the last eight, just with more corruption and scandal," he continued. "A Clinton-Kaine administration will push our country further down the path President Obama has led us on and that has made us less safe, less prosperous, and less free.

"More taxes, more debt, more government and more leading from behind on the global stage will not deliver the turnaround our country desperately needs," the chairman added. "Americans have had enough of the failed Democrat status quo."

Priebus then touted the strengths of the Republican ticket of Donald Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, both of whom were officially nominated at the party's convention this week in Cleveland.

"Donald Trump and Mike Pence offer a better path for our country that puts America first," he said. "A Trump-Pence administration means more jobs with rising incomes, more security, more freedom, and a conservative Supreme Court."

Other Republicans reacted on Twitter:
