Trump, Pence campaigning in Kaine’s home state Monday

ROANOKE, Va. (AP/WRIC) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is planning to make a campaign stop in Virginia.

Trump’s campaign and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, are expected to hold a town hall event on Monday at the Hotel Roanoke & Convention Center.

The event will begin at 3 p.m. The doors will open at 1 p.m. and tickets can be requested here.

Trump’s visit to the crucial swing state comes on the heels of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s announcement Friday that she chose Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine as her running mate.

Kaine, a former Virginia governor and mayor of Richmond, joined Clinton on the campaign trail on Saturday in Florida for the first time as her vice presidential pick. Clinton said Kaine is “everything that Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not.”

Trump responded to Clinton’s decision to pick Kaine as her running mate via Twitter, saying ISIS is “drooling” over her decision, that Kaine is “owned by the banks” and that Kaine “took hundreds of thousands in gifts while governor,” but wasn’t indicted.
