Virginia former governor and now vice presidential hopeful said Wednesday that the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is a civil rights issue, a narrative Kaine may continue in his primetime address to the Democratic National Convention.
"It's a civil rights election folks," U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine said. "Donald Trump uses demeaning and offensive language when he talks about women. Is it too much to ask that someone not offend women every time he opens his mouth?"
Kaine, a former civil rights lawyer who began his practice in Richmond, extended his argument to include Latino voters, a key constituency Democrats hope to win in landslide numbers.
"He talks about Latinos as if they're second class citizens, and we don't have any second class citizens in this country," Kaine said about Trump. "That's what this election is about."
