Democratic VP Candidate Senator Tim Kaine Visits San Diego

The Virginia senator attended a private fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's campaign in Point Loma

Democratic vice presidential candidate Senator Tim Kaine visited San Diego Saturday for a private fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Just before noon, the Virginia senator stopped at a luncheon in Point Loma hosted by local Democratic donor Marcy Krinsk and her husband Jeffrey.

According the San Diego-Union Tribune, the price to attend the Clinton campaign fundraiser was $1,000 per person.

Parts of the road were closed off during the event. There were no protesters or large crowds gathered outside.

NBC 7 spoke with San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts outside the event as he was walking in. He told NBC 7 he was happy to be there.

Roberts said he has followed Kaine's career for years because they are both from Virginia.

Roberts said Kaine will understand the military needs of San Diego because Virginia is also home to a large military community.

Kaine left the fundraiser at around 1:15 p.m.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton named Kaine as her VP pick on July 22, just days before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Kaine served as governor of Virginia before his election in 2012.
