Hillary Clinton’s former pick for Vice President revealed his own future electoral plans to reporters today.

Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has announced that he will seek re-election to his seat in 2024.

Virginia’s former Governor Terry McAuliffe celebrated the news, calling Kaine a “dynamo getting RESULTS” for Virginians.

HuffPost Politics notes the following about Kaine’s announcement, and what it means for Democrats moving forward:

Kaine’s decision to run for reelection bolsters Democrats’ odds of retaining the Virginia Senate seat. Still, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s (R) victory in 2021 ― the first GOP statewide win in Virginia since 2009 ― is one reason Democrats would be foolish to take the race for granted. Though it has trended blue, particularly in federal races, the commonwealth has been a historic battleground that could still offer surprises, particularly with President Joe Biden at the top of the ticket with an expected bid for a second term.
