Kaine on Election: 'You Will Want To Say You Were There'

By    |   Tuesday, 08 Nov 2016 10:24 AM

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine on Tuesday said, "We think this is going to be a history-making election and you will want to say you were there."

The Virginia senator made the comments on "CBS This Morning" after voting. He emphasized the need for strong voter turnout.

"That's what we're trying to do today, just encourage people to get out there. There was a great line already at my polling place when it opened at 6 o'clock, and certainly we saw super enthusiasm in early voting and absentee voting. That's the issue for today, that everybody should participate."

Latino voters could play a key role in the election's outcome, according to the nominee. Kaine said that they see a "huge difference between the two tickets," because "Hillary and I support comprehensive immigration reform and Donald Trump supports building a wall and deporting people."

Those voters are now seeing that their role is vital. Kaine said, "I think this is the election where the Latino community understands that they make a huge difference, that they don't view themselves as a minor part of the electorate anymore. In states like Florida, Virginia, North Carolina and Nevada, Colorado, all over the country, the Latino vote now sees that they could be a difference-maker. And that is an empowering thing."

Host Charlie Rose asked Kaine how he and Clinton might unite the country's divisions if they are elected.

"That's a challenge after every race, and maybe sharper in this one than any race maybe in the last 40 years. Hillary's got a great track record. When she worked in the Senate, she had really good relations on both sides of the aisle." He said that Republicans he had spoken to who had worked with her felt that they could do so again.

He also credited his own success as the governor of Virginia, saying he worked successfully with two Republican-controlled houses.

"The burden's going to be on our shoulders if we are successful," Kaine said.

Kaine talked more about unifying voters after he cast his votes in Richmond, Virginia, according to The Los Angeles Times.

He said, "In the tone of the things that we say, in the team that we put together, and the policies that we promote, we have to show that we want to govern for all, not just those who voted for us."
