MINNEAPOLIS — Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine paid a visit to Minnesota while running mate Hillary Clinton stayed off the campaign trail with a bout of pneumonia.

Kaine chatted with students at the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus Tuesday and later met with a man who once held the job he hopes to land — former Vice President Walter Mondale.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/2csGLLW ) says Kaine posed with students outside Coffman Memorial Union Tuesday and told them he felt like a “hometown event.” Kaine was born in St. Paul.

Inside the union, Kaine and his entourage was surrounded by a crowd of students. He asked them about their hometowns, their university majors and career goals.

Kaine later met privately with Mondale before attending a fundraiser in Minneapolis.
