ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Tim Kaine greets locals and sits down at a table with friends at the City Diner in Richmond, VA on Tuesday (July 26). "There's one thing almost as exciting as your- the election. And it's the Cubs," a man at the table says to Kaine, as he throws his arms in the air. The Democratic National Convention got off to a rocky start on Monday, as delegates supporting Bernie Sanders booed at mentions of unifying behind Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine. Clinton's campaign had hoped in Philadelphia to put the bare-knuckle primary fight behind it, but Sanders' voters were enraged by Friday's embarrassing release of internal party emails by the activist group WikiLeaks showing party officials clearly favored Clinton over their candidate. Sanders supporters seemed to be everywhere, often with a bigger presence than Clinton supporters, a jarring sight at an event where she is due to be formally nominated as the party's presidential candidate. At a delegate welcoming event on Sunday night, shouts of "Bernie!" filled the air as his supporters circulated a petition to force convention organizers to hold an extended roll-call vote on the floor this week that would require each delegate to declare his or her support. Others pledged to contest Clinton's choice of Democrat Tim Kaine, a U.S. senator from Virginia, as her running mate. In choosing the soft-spoken Kaine, a former Richmond mayor and Virginia governor with a long establishment resume, Clinton opted for a steady and experienced hand who she hopes will offer a clear alternative to Trump's volatile campaign and his Republican vice presidential choice Mike Pence.
