Hampton, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach – thank you for showing us such a great time! It was an energizing Saturday with my friends Bobby Scott and Elaine Luria.

The Net Worth of Tim Kaine
How rich is Tim Kaine? As of late-2019 it’s at ~$1.5 million, earned largely through a career in politics. He has also served in other positions throughout his career, and worked as an attorney in private practice.
Early Life and Education
Tim was born the eldest of three sons, and is of Scottish descent. His father was the owner of a small iron working shop, and his mother was a home economics teacher. He attended Rockhurst High School and during his time there, was elected as student body president. After matriculating, he then enrolled into the University of Missouri to study for a degree in economics which he completed in 1979, and graduating as summa cum laude. During the same year, he entered Harvard Law School, but suspended his law studies to work in Honduras for a year, running a vocational center which taught welding and carpentry, while also helping Jesuit missionaries in the area. He learned how to speak Spanish thanks to his time there, and then returned to Harvard to complete his J.D. in 1983. After graduating, he moved to Richmond, Virginia, and was admitted to the Virginia Bar the following year.
Legal Career and Political Beginnings
Kaine initially worked as a law clerk for Judge R. Lanier Anderson III, before joining the law firm Little, Parsley & Cluverius, P.C. In 1987 he became a director of the law firm Mezzullo & McCandlish, P.C., and over the next 17 years continued practicing law while based in Richmond, specializing in fair housing while also representing clients discriminated against due to disability or race. He became a board member of Housing Opportunities Made Equal’s Virginia chapter, and one of his most notable endeavors was prosecuting a lawsuit against Nationwide Mutual insurance Co., which resulted in a $17.5 million settlement.
He also taught at the University of Richmond School of Law as an adjunct professor, and wasn’t really interested in politics until later in his life. However, due to the influence of his wife and attending Richmond city council meetings, he was elected onto Richmond’s city council, and after two years was then elected as mayor of Richmond, succeeding Larry Chavis, becoming the city’s first white mayor in more than 10 years. During his tenure, the homicide rate in the city fell by 55%, and he consequently garnered a lot of political support thanks to his policies.

In 2001, Tim ran for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and won, serving in the position for the next four years. He then ran for governor of Virginia and despite being considered an underdog during the race, he ultimately prevailed. As Governor, he made numerous moves to preserve large environmental areas of the state ,while also pursuing various health-related issues, as well as stabilizing the state during the financial crisis. In 2007, he announced his support for Senator Obama’s presidential bid, and was initially considered for a vice-president run but ultimately wasn’t chosen by Obama.
In 2009, he became the chair of the Democratic National Committee, but kept a low profile for most of his time there. Three years later, he ran for Senate and was able to win the election. He became a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, and later tried his hand in a vice presidential campaign endorsing Hillary Clinton. However, he lost his bid, making it the only election he ever lost. He recently announced that he would run for a re-election to the Senate in 2018.
Kaine married Anne Bright Holton in 1984. Anne is the daughter of the 61st Governor of Virginia – A. Linwood Holton Jr. The couple met while both were students at Harvard Law School. Anne serves as a judge on the Virginia Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, and is a former Virginia’s secretary of education, but stepped down during his husband’s bid for vice-president. Tim enjoys playing the harmonica, and has been playing it for over 20 years, even travelling with several harmonicas at a time. He is also the first ever member of a presidential ticket to deliver a speech in fluent Spanish.
Over the past 32 years, my wonderful wife has been the best partner I could have hoped for. I'm so lucky to have her by my side. Happy Valentine's Day, Anne!
