U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine visited the University of Virginia on Friday for a conversation on faith, spirituality and public life.
Kaine was joined by three other panelists on stage to talk about his faith journey and how this has impacted his role as a political figure in Virginia.
Growing up in an Irish Catholic household, Kaine talked about his faith journey, volunteering at a school in Honduras, and balancing his values between faith and politics.
He said history has shown religion and faith to be a divider, but he said it can also unite the community.
The Miller Center of Public Affairs hosted the event.
Kaine is seeking re-election this November and is running against Republican candidate Corey Stewart.
