Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine appears to be leading the talk among Democrats about a running mate for presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Kaine was the governor of Virginia and chaired the Democratic National Committee for two years. Supporters say he could balance the ticket because of his moderate positions and his experience as a governor would complement Clinton.

Kaine endorsed Clinton for president before she announced her 2016 run, according to The Washington Post. He worked at a mission in Honduras while he was in law school and speaks fluent Spanish, the Post said.

"I would be 100-percent enthusiastic about Tim Kaine being our vice presidential candidate," Clinton donor Peter Buttenweiser said, reports CNN.

Rep. Gerry Connolly said Kaine "provides a lot of talent to the ticket," and has the potential to be a good president. "He could certainly be an heir apparent."

Kaine has spoken out against Donald Trump, saying he insulted the American military by calling it a "disaster," according to ForeignPolicy.com.

Other possibilities would be more notable than Kaine, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, African-American Sen. Cory Booker, and Latino Labor Secretary Julian Castro, reports CNN.

The Virginia senator said he isn't looking for another job, saying he's "happy" as a senator and he doesn't know if he's even being considered for the position.

"I'm not on any list that I know of," he told CNN.
