U.S. Senate candidate and former Gov. Tim Kaine unveiled a new campaign website Tuesday that includes mobile and Spanish versions.
Kaine's campaign unveiled the new site in an email to supporters, saying it is "one of the first fully functional mobile campaign sites of the 2012 cycle."
“I am thrilled with the outpouring of grassroots support our campaign has received in these early months,” Kaine said in a press release. “The new website and mobile site will allow us to communicate more frequently and effectively with our supporters as well as attract a diverse group of new supporters to our campaign.”
In addition to the mobile application and the comprehensive Spanish language section, the website includes twitter and facebook feeds that the campaign said will allow people to "interact" with the candidate, campaign staffers and each other.
Kaine is seeking the Democratic nomination to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Jim Webb. He is being challeneged in the primary by Courtney Lynch and Julien Modica.
Leading the field in theRepublican primary to replace Webb is former U.S. Sen. and Gov. George Allen, who lost the seat to Webb in 2006. Allen is being challenged by Jaime Radtke, Tim Donner, E.W. Jackson and David McCormick.
Kaine and Allen are scheduled to debate each other Dec. 7th, a full six months ahead of the Virginia primaries, in Richmond as part of AP Day. Radtke and Donner have protested being excluded from the event, saying the "mainstream media" has essentially already picked the candidates for the Nov. 2012 general election.
