It’s a big moment for any Senator, making a first speech on the floor. Virginia’s junior Senator, Tim Kaine, will make his debut on Wednesday at 1:45 p.m.
His subject will be the automatic budget cuts, called sequestration, that are due to take effect Friday. Kaine plans to highlight stories he heard from Virginians on his three-day, statewide tour last week.
Kaine’s floor speech will be broadcast live on CSPAN-2.
