How Pence can pave the way for Trump before Sunday’s debate
At Conservative Read by Chris,
On Tuesday vice presidential nominees, Governor Mike Pence and Senator Tim Kaine will take the debate stage. Those who tune in are likely to see a more traditional debate: one that is heavy on policy prescriptions, and light on biting quips and interruptions. Perhaps more boring than the top-of-the-ticket debate, it’s still worth watching. While Mr. Trump and Secretary Clinton are preparing for the second debate on Sunday, the vice presidential debate should fill in some of the holes left over from the first presidential debate.
While the first debate was close to a draw, Trump did miss some wide openings to slam Clinton on matters related to her record. At this stage in the election, it is not enough to say “she has experience and it’s bad.” To convincingly get this point across, the Trump-Pence ticket needs to remind everyone watching exactly what that bad experience entails.
