@TimKaine: Keep Your Pledge to Publicly Oppose TPP

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Keep your pledge to come out publicly against the TPP.

Why is this important?

Hillary Clinton has chosen Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate. As a Senator, Kaine voted for fast-track authority to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement [TPP]. But the Washington Post reports that Kaine has promised to come out publicly against the TPP itself. [1]

If Kaine comes out publicly against the TPP now, this will greatly strengthen the idea that "oppose the TPP" is the "Democratic Party line," and thereby help us block a lame-duck vote on the TPP after the election.

Urge Kaine to keep his <span class="profanity">pledge</span> to come out publicly against the TPP by signing our petition.
