Anne Holton, Kaine’s wife, Resigns as Virginia Education Secretary

Vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s wife has resigned her post as Virginia’s education secretary — just as Kaine gets ready to formally accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for vice president.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Anne Holton’s resignation on Tuesday. In a statement, the governor hailed Holton as a “tireless advocate” for students and “an essential leader in securing historic investments in public education.”
