Democratic VP Candidate Tim Kaine to Visit Stephen Colbert's 'Late Show'
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is heading to late night.
Hillary Clinton's running mate is set to visit The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Aug. 25, it was announced Thursday.
This marks the Virginia senator's first late-night appearance since he was selected as Clinton's running mate in June. Their first joint interview was also on CBS, specifically for 60 Minutes. So far, Kaine's solo interviews have skewed away from the traditional path. He granted one of his first individual interviews to Telemundo, the NBCUniversal-owned Spanish network. Clinton will appear on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, Aug. 22, for her first late-night stop since accepting the Democratic Party nomination last month.
Earlier this month, Colbert famously discussed the similarities in appearance between Kaine and one of his Late Show staffers, Mark Spada, as seen in the video below.
Colbert has increasingly taken advantage of the upcoming presidential election for his show. In addition to taping live shows for both the RNC and DNC, CBS recently announced that The Late Show will air live during the presidential debates.
The Late Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
