GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is looking for votes in a state many think will be key to winning the White House in November.

Kaine talked to a large group in Greensboro, but before, he took a tour through AmeriFab International in High Point.

Then it was off to Greensboro where about 500 people packed the J. Douglas Galyon Depot where he talked about jobs and the Clinton campaign's plan.

"It's important for him to be here in the triad today to talk about jobs because we have some great examples of what is at stake,” said Attorney General Roy Cooper.

Doors opened just after noon at the depot and Kaine hit the stage just after 2 p.m. However, his message Wednesday was more than just jobs.

"At the higher up level, Hillary Clinton has been pretty bold. We are going to have debt free college and it's just not about debt free college its historic investments in HBC[U]'s and minority serving institutions,” Kaine stated before a cheering crowd.

He also stressed the importance of manufacturing and investing in infrastructure within the state.

"I know that we can do that through Hillary and through Tim Kaine and it means a lot... it means a lot to our future,” said David Morie, Clinton supporter.

"They list items. We did this, we did this, we did this. Here’s what we care about. Here’s what we are going to do about it. This is our promise to you,” mentioned small business owner Holly Burdick.

Kaine is hoping that this stop will help shift the political winds towards a Clinton presidency.

"Your vote matters and after this court ruling we got to show everyone our vote matters and vote for Hillary Clinton,” he said as he capped off his speech.

Kaine says he promises to be back here in North Carolina and hopes of a win in North Carolina in November similar to President Obama’s campaign in the 2008 election.
