Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia has ruled out a run for president in 2020 and, for that matter, even another vice-presidential bid.

Fresh off his loss he suffered with Hillary Clinton, Kaine told the Richmond Times-Dispatch his "highest and best use" is serving in the upper chamber on Capitol Hill.

"I have been through the VP stakes twice, and came close once and got on the ticket, and won Virginia and won the popular vote and lost — so I came close the second time," Kaine said to the newspaper in an interview published Thursday.

"I was really honored to be asked by Hillary [Clinton], and it was a history-making race to be the first woman nominated. And for her to do well in Virginia and win the popular vote, that is all to her credit.

"And I was really proud to be part of it. But I think the Catholic in me likes to go to the place where there is the most work to be done."
