Tim Kaine made history by delivering an entire speech in Spanish during a church service

Regardless of your political views, I think we can agree that seeing someone on the presidential ticket deliver a speech entirely in Spanish during a Spanish-language church service is pretty impressive.

And that's exactly what Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine did Sunday morning, making him the first presidential ticket candidate to ever do so, according to CNN.

"Yo soy catolico," Kaine said to the congregation at Pneuma Church in Miami, Florida.

Kaine introduced himself and discussed the time he spent working as a missionary in Honduras. He also noted Hillary Clinton's faith as a Methodist.

The senator from Virginia encouraged the congregation to vote and reminded them of the Oct. 18 registration deadline.

After delivering his speech, Kaine received a blessing from the pastor and the congregation prayed for him.

Kaine's visit to Florida is part of Clinton's outreach campaign aimed at reaching new Americans. She's particularly focused on the battleground state of Florida.

According to CNN, another sign Clinton's campaign is specifically targeting Hispanic-Americans is the fact that nearly one-quarter of her Florida organizing staff speaks Spanish.

A campaign aide told CNN there has been a "huge spike" in the number of vote by mail requests from Hispanic voters in Florida.
