Kaine was meeting with voters when a woman mistook him for Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s vice-presidential candidate, even after he introduced himself.

“Hello Mr. Pence, hello,” the woman said.

“I’m the other one. I’m Kaine, not Pence,” the senator from Virginia replied.

Later during the meet-and-greet, Kaine told another group of customers about the mistake.

“She said, ‘You know what, you’re going to do just fine even though you’re the other guy,'” Kaine said with a laugh.

Unfazed, Kaine wrapped up the event by telling a table of customers about his track record of running for elected positions. Kaine told guests that he had lost three consecutive attempts to be elected to student council in high school, and didn’t win his first campaign until he was 36.
