Tonight’s vice presidential debate doesn’t exactly have Donald Trump v. Hillary Clinton buildup. Republican Mike Pence once described himself as “Rush Limbaugh on decaf” and Tim Kaine is a former missionary who will most likely attempt to liven up the debate by speaking Spanish.
CBS News’ Elaine Quijano will moderate Tuesday’s showdown between the vice presidential candidates at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Let’s get ready to rumble, or at least shift in our seats.
However, just because both Kaine and Pence are considered safe choices within their parties doesn’t mean nothing memorable can happen.
Will Pence come prepared? Will Kaine attack Donald Trump’s leaked taxes? Will anyone make a critical mistake? Will all the microphones work? The possibilities are endless.
The debate will be divided into nine time segments of approximately 10 minutes each, according to the Commission on Presidential debates. Quijano will ask an opening question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Quijano will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.
Most television news networks will broadcast the debate, but you don’t have to go anywhere as TheWrap will stream is live right here.
