    Tim Kaine was in town Saturday afternoon for a fundraiser, but you won’t see any stories about it in newspapers. That’s because the event, which took place at the local Democratic Party campaign headquarters on West Main Street, was closed to the press.

    “Generally the campaign fundraisers we hold are not open to the press,” said Lilly Adams, Kaine’s press secretary.
    Why is that?
    “Most fundraisers are in peoples’ houses,” she said.
