Tim Kaine's selection as Hillary Clinton's running mate could totally upend Virginia politics.

And it would all but certainly result in the most expensive election cycle in the state's history next if Kaine becomes vice president.

Kaine was announced Friday as Clinton's choice to be the Democratic vice presidential candidate.

If he wins, it'll mean Virginia has an unprecedented dual Senate and gubernatorial races next year, with yet another Senate contest the year after.

Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe would get to pick a temporary replacement for Kaine's Senate seat. McAuliffe declined to say whom he would pick, but said that having a minority or female candidate represent the state is a significant consideration.
