“Pence knocked it out of the ballpark”, Stewart said, praising Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
Trump and Clinton’s running mates go head to head in Farmville, a town of 8,000 in Virginia, a state that was once reliably Republican but where Clinton now leads in opinion polls. Ted Cruz in the GOP presidential primary, he cited Cruz’s “knowledge of the Constitution”.

Mr Pence vouched for the NY billionaire’s tax history, but was less vocal when challenged about Mr Trump’s temperament or his inflammatory words about women and president Barack Obama.
Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton face off during the first presidential debate.
At the debate, Pence also danced around defending Trump’s comments about illegal Mexican immigrants, the proposed “extreme vetting” of Muslims entering the country, and his statements on releasing his tax returns. “And he responded and he responded about the same way every time which is I want to talk about something else”, Kaine said. This year, Trump and Hillary Clinton are effectively tied in an average of recent polls compiled by Real Clear Politics. Kaine said his opponent is a pretty good debater.
“And I’ll tell you, he was a good one”, the Republican nominee continued.
Stewart said Kaine’s exchange about September 11 was “embarrassing” and may influence some Virginia voters.

“If you serve as vice president that is the best place to be” in order to seek a presidential nomination someday, Palazzolo said.
“Pence in this debate was like a candidate from an alternate universe where his running mate wasn’t Donald Trump”, Meyers said.
It seems to have taken a poor debate performance by Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine to finally get ABC to cover former President Bill Clinton’s critical remarks about ObamaCare. OK: Clinton speaks with sophistication about Russian Federation, while Trump sometimes sounds as if he has a crush on its shirtless strongman.
