WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine says he’s not thinking about preparing to become president should anything happen to running mate Hillary Clinton.
In an interview for “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” that aired Friday, the Virginia senator was asked how someone in his position prepares to suddenly become president. Kaine laughed and said, “You don’t think about that.”
Instead, Kaine said he’s focused on making an eventual Clinton administration successful.
Kaine insists that Clinton’s recent health scare didn’t increase pressure on him to look presidential in case he is unexpectedly pushed into the White House.
Clinton took three days off to recover from pneumonia this week. But she returned to campaigning Thursday saying the time away gave her new perspective on why she’s running.
