HAMPTON, Va. – Democratic Senator Tim Kaine and Republican challenger Corey Stewart met for another Town Hall on Wednesday at Hampton University.
The Town Hall was moderated by News 3’s April Woodard and Les Smith. Both candidates were questioned separately on issues related to foreign policy and defense. Students also asked the candidates questions.
“Members of the United States Senate, members of the United States House, have for more than 20 years been sexually harassing women in the halls of Congress. And this wasn’t just based upon some rumor from 40 years ago when Brett Kavanaugh was in high school,” Stewart said, while repeatedly calling for the release of names for any members of Congress who have been accused, WTVR reports.
“Don’t pretend that you care about victims of sexual assault. If you did, you wouldn’t have called Dr. Ford a bunch of crap when she raised her allegation. If you did, you wouldn’t have gone to Alabama and campaigned for Roy Moore,” Kaine said of Stewart.
Polls give Kaine a sizable lead over Stewart with under five weeks to go until Election Day on November 6.
The Town Hall was broadcast live on News 3 at 7 p.m.
