Twitter users falling in love with @YoungTimKaine

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — It seems newly named vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is winning over the hearts of many potential voters for more than just his political views.

On Friday, images of the current Virginia senator and Richmond resident as a younger man in the 90s began surfacing on social media, and it didn’t take long for the Twittersphere to take notice.

It also didn’t take long for a Twitter handle to be created with the name, ‘Young Tim Kaine,’ and a bio that reads,”young heartthrob lawyer fighting for equality for all.”

You may recall earlier this week when Kaine became the brunt of many dad jokes following his speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Sure enough, now there’s a ‘Dad Tim Kaine‘ Twitter handle with the bio, ‘Everyone’s favorite dad, running for VP, while collecting quarters from every state on the campaign trail.’
