Baez Tuned In to Tim Kaine

During her show Wednesday night at Wolf Trap, folk singer Joan Baez purportedly took the time to pay musical tribute to a local boy who works right here on the Hill: freshman Sen. Tim Kaine.

“Hey @JoanBaez — thanks for dedicating “Deportee” to me last night at Wolf Trap!” Kaine gloated on Twitter.

Staff told HOH the Virginia Democrat did not attend the actual concert and does not know Baez personally but that he had heard from friends who were at the show that he’d been name-checked.
