Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s been showing off her running mate in Florida.

Senator Tim Kaine has been picked to help promote a steady alternative to the unpredictable campaign of Republican rival Donald Trump – as she battles it out for the White House.

“I have to say that Senator Tim Kaine is everything that Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not,” Clinton told cheering supporters in Miami.

“He is qualified to step into this job and lead on day one. And he is a progressive who likes to get things done.”

Kaine told the crowd: “Let me tell you something that Harry Truman said that could have been written five minutes ago. America was not built on fear. It was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.

“Friends, Hillary Clinton is filled with that courage, that imagination, and that unbeatable determination.”

Clinton is due to be formally nominated as presidential candidate at the upcoming Democratic convention in Philadelphia. She leads Trump in many opinion polls.
