Sen. Tim Kaine
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on his intent to vote against cloture and final confirmation for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his testimony and past decisions, I’ve observed that he has repeatedly taken an activist approach to cases involving a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her health. He has made the astounding argument that bosses have an individual right to prevent their company’s female employees from using their own health insurance to buy contraception. He has taken extraordinary steps to force reconsideration

ROANOKE, VA– The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia’s leading small-business association, has endorsed Senator Ralph Smith’s re-election in the 19th Senate District race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. NFIB has 6,000 small-business members throughout the Commonwealth.
“As an entrepreneur who has created hundreds of jobs, Senator Smith understands the challenges facing Virginia’s small and family businesses. Senator Smith has fought to keep taxes low and fought unnecessary regulations on business. He is the clear choice for voters in Senate District 19 who are concerned about job creation,” said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia. “Senator Smith has also stood up for Virginia’s job creators time and again on important issues such as tax relief, health-care reform and the right of employees to cast secret ballots in union organization elections.”
“We trust Senator Smith will continue to take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and puts the Commonwealth back on the pathway to success,” said Riley.
