Senator Tim Kaine was Hillary Clinton’s running partner in the 2016 Presidential election. His youngest son, Linwood Kaine, was one of six people arrested on Saturday after some ‘counter-protestors’ disrupted a pro-Trump rally in Minnesota. The reason for the arrest is suspicion of second-degree riot, but he and four others were not charged with anything, but one of the six also was cited for disorderly conduct. These ‘counter-protestors’ clashed with the Trump supporters and rudely disrupted the proceedings with air horns, chanting and whistles. According to police reports, someone even set off a smoke bomb which hit a woman in the head.

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, a St. Paul native, released a Tuesday night statement through a spokesperson to the Pioneer Press. “We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” he said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.” Woody Kaine is one of three children of Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Houlton. An older son, Nat, a Marine serving overseas, was more visible during the presidential campaign. The couple also has a daughter, Anella. On Saturday afternoon, several hundred Trump supporters showed up at the Capitol for a permitted rally billed as the “March 4 Trump,” one of several held around the country. The Minnesota State Patrol estimated the crowds at 400 Trump supporters and 50 counterdemonstrators. Speeches had been going on for about a half-hour inside the newly renovated Capitol rotunda when a group of people tried to disrupt the event. At one point, someone set off a smoke bomb — apparently striking a woman in the head, police said.
