Veep Joe Biden flubbed Virginia Senate candidate Tim Kaine’s name – twice – at the same campaign stop in Lynchburg.

Vice President Joe Biden mixed up the name of the Democratic Senate candidate in Virginia today, calling him by the wrong first name not once, but twice.

“I want to tell you, it’s good to be in a state that’s going to be represented by Tim Kaine. What a guy! There is a decent honorable man. That man has more integrity in his little finger than most people have in their whole body. I’m a big Tom Kaine fan, a big Tom Kaine fan,” Biden said at the Lynchburg City Armory.
In May, the vice president headlined a fundraiser for Kaine, a former governor of Virginia who is running for the Senate seat in Virginia against Republican George Allen, also a former Virginia governor. Kaine also served as the chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2009 to 2011.
