Kaine predicts Clinton will have ‘mandate’ for immigration reform
Politico.com | Oct 7, 2016
Not only does Tim Kaine expect Hillary Clinton to win the election in November, he expects her to do it so convincingly that she will arrive in the White House armed with a mandate to get an immigration reform package through Congress.
The Virginia senator said he’s heard from his Capitol Hill colleagues, including Republicans, that the election is essentially a referendum by proxy on the issue of immigration reform. And Kaine said even the Republican senators he’s talked to are eager to put the issue in their rear-view mirror.
