Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has selected Tim Kaine, a centrist senator from Virginia, and former governor as her running mate.
According to BBC, Mrs Clinton broke the news in a tweet late on Friday.
She plans a formal announcement later today in a rally in Miami.
58-year-old senator, who is ten years younger than Clinton is a strong supporter of free-trade agreements and a nominee of President Obama and Bill Clinton.
He is a Catholic and his home state of Virginia is a major battleground in the coming election.
Mr Kaine speaks fluent Spanish and could help the Clinton campaign maintain its support among Hispanic Americans - a growing voting bloc says BBC.
An experienced politician who has been toughly vetted, he is considered a "safe" choice for the vice-president slot. He personally opposes abortion but supports abortion rights.
He said moving to Vigirna with wife and kid is a beautiful decision he has made.
