The Democratic vice presidential nominee ran into a familiar figure at a Cedar Rapids campaign event today: Abraham Lincoln.
Wearing a black suit and a replica of the sixteenth president’s iconic stovepipe hat with a Clinton-Kaine sticker on its side, Lincoln impersonator Lance Mack attended the rally, sitting in the audience for Kaine’s speech.
After his remarks at the Iowa rally, the Lincoln look-a-like worked his way to the ropeline to shake Kaine’s hand. As Kaine approached Mack, the Democratic vice presidential nominee said “Nice to see you, Mr. President.”
Despite the allegiance of his inspiration, Mack told ABC News he is a lifelong Democrat.
