When you watched the Vice Presidential Debates, what were your thoughts? Hunter Schwarz, a national political reporter, tuned in to tell us about what he thought about the VP nominees going head to head:
“I really like the vice presidential debates because there’s only one, and it really gives viewers a glimpse into what’s going on in the individual campaigns. Pence was very calm and collected, and Kaine interrupted about 60 times. Republicans felt like it was a win for them, and Democrats said they weren’t happy that Pence didn’t defend Trump at all. I talked to the Clinton campaign manager yesterday, and they think Trump is going to be cool, calm, and collected for the next debate. I could see him going either way. As I’ve talked to a celebrity campaign managers, the one thing they all say is “We need to take celebrity nominees seriously.” That’s how Trump was taken in the beginning, as a joke. Now people are thinking differently.” -Hunter Schwarz
