Salem, VA - Former Governor Tim Kaine was in the area Monday meeting with veterans. Kaine met members of the Roanoke Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans in Salem.
Kaine says he is interested in continuing the pro-veteran policies pushed through by current Senator Jim Webb.
With an aging population, more veterans needing help and budgets tight... Kaine is looking for ideas on how to balance everything without hurting veteran causes.
"If we deal with them the wrong way we can really work grave harm to programs that veterans and military families rely on and so I want to get perspective of issues folk care about," said Kaine.
Kaine will likely be facing Former Republican Governor and Senator, George Allen for the Senate seat that Democrat Jim Webb is leaving.
The GOP Primary is on June 12.
