VP nominee Tim Kaine and his harmonica go 1-on-1 with Charles Benson

Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine campaigned in Milwaukee Friday at the Lakefront Brewery.
 
Kaine has been a mayor and a governor, and now the U.S. Senator is a VP candidate. TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson talked with Kaine about his faith, the challenges the Clinton-Kaine ticket faces, and his musical skills.
 
"The choice for America is really clear, do you want a you're hired president, that's Hillary Clinton, you want a you're fired president, that's Donald Trump."
 
Tim Kaine knows politics can be hardball, but he says Donald Trump has a pattern of saying things and attacking opponents that question his temperament.

"There's no president in the history of this United States who is immune from criticism for something that they have done, said Kaine. "She understands that, she's going to focus on issues that matter like jobs, she's not going to shadow box against every last person who says something negative about her."
 
Both Trump and Clinton lost big in Wisconsin. Bernie Sanders won 71 out of 72 counties.
 
Benson: What do you have to do to carry Wisconsin?
Kaine: Bernie did a great job. Now look Bernie, during the primary, but he's also doing a great job now. At the convention he spoke very strongly about why Hillary Clinton should be president.
 
At the Democratic National Convention, Kaine talked about his faith, going to a Jesuit boys high school and spending a year with Jesuit Missionaries in Honduras.

Benson: How does your faith guide you?
Kaine: It is the reason I do what I do and I would say to summarize it it's the good Samaritan story. What's the way to have eternal life, love God, love your neighbor as yourself?
 
And speaking of love, the Virginia Senator is known for breaking out the harmonica at campaign stops. I brought one for him to see if I could test his skills. He played Love Me Do by The Beatles.
