(Before It's News)

According to the New York times, Hillary Clinton has come to a decision on who she wants as her running mate, and for some reason, it’s not Julian Castro.

From the NYT…

Hillary Clinton named Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia to be her running mate Friday, according to a senior campaign official, selecting a battleground state politician with working-class roots and a fluency in Spanish, traits that she believes can bolster her chances to defeat Donald J. Trump in November.

Tim Kain is the former Governor of Virginia, and currently sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Known as a bit of a centrist, Clinton reportedly selected him a safe choice, who has a lot of experience, and is a bit of a policy wonk.

Against someone like Donald Trump, a centrist may be just what she needs to lure in those on the fence. As the NYT writes…

Known as a pragmatic governor and senator, Mr. Kaine could help Mrs. Clinton appeal to independent voters and moderate Republicans displeased with Mr. Trump. But he could also turn off some liberal Democrats with his support of free trade agreements, which Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont criticized to great effect in his nominating fight against Mrs. Clinton.

Clinton is expected to make the official announcement soon.
