    News4 has learned Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) will endorse Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, if she chooses to run.

    Kaine, a former governor and Democratic National Committee chairman, is in South Carolina this weekend as a keynote speaker for the Jefferson Jackson dinner.

    Seven years ago, Kaine was the first governor outside of Illinois to endorse Barack Obama for president -- over Clinton.

    Clinton has yet to announce whether or not she will run.
