Mi Familia Vota on Secretary Clinton’s Vice Presidential Pick, Sen. Tim Kaine
WASHINGTON DC- The following is a statement from Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota, on Secretary Clinton’s pick for vice president.
“Sec. Clinton’s choice of Sen. Tim Kaine for vice president sets a new chapter in this year’s historic election. The Latino and immigrant communities now have a choice between two very different visions for the future of our country. She has chosen a running mate that has a track record of advocating and fighting for the issues that affect the Latino community and our nation: Immigration, healthcare, women’s rights, and the environment.
“He also supported the bi-partisan comprehensive immigration reform bill approved in the Senate in 2013, which was blocked by Republican leadership in the House.
“But we are mobilizing our communities and registering as many eligible Latino voters as possible. We are ready to make history at the ballot box and we are ready to make our voices heard through our votes. Come Election Day, we will help elect candidates who are willing to fight for our families.
