Senator Tim Kaine says he is endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In a tweet the senator sent out Friday morning, it says Kaine believes "We deserve better in the Oval Office."

“It is sad to have a President who no one holds up as a role model for America’s kids. By contrast, Joe Biden has exemplary heart, character, and experience,” Kaine said in a statement provided to The Washington Post.

Among Virginia voters who are likely to participate in the Democratic primary on March 3, support currently stands at 22% for Bloomberg, 22% for Sanders, and 18% for Biden, according to a recent poll from Monmouth University.

This endorsement comes ahead of Biden's visit to Hampton Roads and Virginia's Democratic Primary on Super Tuesday on March 3.
