Tim Kaine who?
While Donald Trump’s been president for only a couple months, it seems as if Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democratic Party’s 2016 vice presidential nominee, may already be relegated to the role of a trivia question.
Nevertheless, he is scheduled to be in the Los Angeles area Saturday to speak to an LGBTQ civil rights organization and raise funds for his 2018 re-election campaign.
Kaine will be the featured speaker at the Human Rights Campaign’s Los Angeles Gala, during which singer Katy Perry will receive the National Equality Award from the organization that bills itself as the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization.
Earlier in the day, Kaine will attend what his campaign describes as an intimate lunch and conversation in Beverly Hills. Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson of “Modern Family” is one of the event co-hosts.
Suggested contributions are $500, $1,000, $2,700 and $5,400, according to an invitation obtained by City News Service.
Federal law limits individual contributions to a Senate campaign to $2,700 per election. The initial $2,700 from each contribution will be designated to Kaine’s primary campaign and the next $2,700 to his general election campaign, according to the invitation.
