Tim Kaine “increasingly likely” to run for Senate, but not official yet

After a tweet from UVA Professor Larry Sabato announcing that former Gov. Tim Kaine is running for Jim Webb‘s Senate seat, many media outlets are reporting that Brad Woodhouse, the communications director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), released a stalling statement  that the announcement was not yet official.

"In response to a student’s question, Governor Kaine told his law school class today what is already widely known, which is that he is increasingly likely to run," but “no final decision will be made or announced until the governor has had a final round of consultations with folks about how he can best serve the President, the people and the causes he cares about.”

If Kaine decides to throw his hat in the race, he will face off against former Republican Senator and fellow former Governor George Allen, Jamie Radtke, chairwoman for the Virginia Federation of Tea Party Patriots, and Republican David McCormick.
