KAINE: "Yes, but — but I — this is an important topic that everybody needs to know about these e-mails. One e-mail has come up with my name in it and it’s completely inaccurate. Now was it inaccurate because the sender didn’t know what he or she was talking about? Was it inaccurate because it was doctored? I have no way of knowing. On Catholicism, I am Catholic. I’m very, very serious about my Catholicism, and Hillary views that s a real asset. And we’ve talked about our faith lives as she asked me to be on the ticket with her. So in terms of what Hillary Clinton, who’s running for president, thinks about Catholics, and the value more broadly of having a faith background, I can tell you she views at it as a plus, just as she views her own Methodism as a plus."
