Tim Kaine ends up second in line behind 99-year-old voter

Washington (CNN). Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine displayed a time-honored trait for a vice president -- preparedness -- showing up at his Richmond, Virginia, polling place 15 minutes early on Tuesday.

Despite his planning, Kaine ended up second in line -- perhaps also appropriate for the potential vice president.

Kaine told CNN's "New Day" that he "got to my polling place about a quarter until 6," and that "there was already a line" when he arrived.

The Virginia senator was beaten to the polls by 99-year old Minerva Turpin.

----------

We got to the polls at 5:55am. Probably around 100 people already in line. Took us 25 minutes. When we left, the line behind us was zig-zagging throughout the middle school corridors. Hundreds more had shown up before 6:30am.

Heavy Dem stronghold here.
