From the Kaine campaign...congratulations to my friend Mike Henry on being named Chief of Staff for Senator-elect Kaine. A well-deserved honor!

Richmond, VA - Today, Senator-elect Tim Kaine announced members of his transition team that will begin the process of establishing his U.S. Senate office.

Mike Henry, Chief of Staff: Mike Henry most recently served as the Campaign Manager for Kaine's campaign for U.S. Senate. Henry, a veteran of Virginia politics, previously managed Kaine's gubernatorial campaign in 2005 and U.S. Senator Mark Warner's 2008 campaign for Senate.  Mike has also worked in a number of policy roles, serving as a representative conducting case work for former U.S. Senator Chuck Robb and, more recently, as the Senior Director for U.S. Field Operations at the ONE campaign where he focused on strategies to alleviate global poverty.  

Jillian Martin, Transition Director: Jillian Martin most recently served as the Policy Director for Kaine's campaign for U.S. Senate. Martin has extensive experience on Capitol Hill, having previously served on the staffs of U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Robert Byrd, and U.S. Representative Dan Maffei.

Marc Cheatham, Transition Scheduler: Marc Cheatham most recently served as the Scheduling Director for Kaine's campaign for U.S. Senate. Cheatham is a long-time member of Senator-elect Kaine's staff, serving as his executive aide at the Democratic National Committee and as Director of Constituent Services and Senior Assistant to the Governor for Policy in Kaine's administration.  Cheatham first began working for Kaine during Kaine's term as Lt. Governor after serving as a U.S. Marine Corps sergeant.  

"I am thrilled this team has agreed to assist me as we set up a Senate office that will serve all Virginians. Their expertise will be invaluable during this process," said Kaine. "Mike has been a trusted member of my staff and advisor for years and I am excited he's agreed to continue to serve the Commonwealth in this new role. I am additionally grateful Jillian and Marc have stepped in to lend their expertise to ensure a seamless transition as we set up offices in Washington and Virginia."

Additional transition announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
