Tim Kaine, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, spoke to staff and students at the University of Richmond on Monday evening, discussing his role as a leadership studies professor and active politician.

The article in The Collegian reports, “I never thought I would be in politics,” Kaine said. “I was a civil rights lawyer and still I kind of think of myself as a civil rights lawyer that has taken a 17-year temporary return in politics,” he said to a crowd of about 30 people outside of the Gottwald Center for the Sciences.
