The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Democratic sources confirm that Hillary Clinton will select Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate, edging out Tom Vilsack and Cory Booker.

Hillary Clinton is on the verge of announcing her vice-presidential pick, with Democrats familiar with her search believing she will settle on a Spanish-speaking ally from a battleground state: Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.

Two other candidates also were under consideration until the end—Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor, and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, people familiar with the process said. The Clinton campaign declined to comment.

Mrs. Clinton is likely to announce her selection Friday in the form of a text message to supporters. On Saturday, she is set to campaign in Florida, a potential stage for a joint appearance with her newly minted running mate.

 Let’s see what Friday brings.
