Tonight, Vice President Mike Pence and Kamala Harris will debate one another in Utah.

The one and only 2020 vice-presidential debate will last for precisely one hour and a half. During this period, both Pence and Harris will be asked questions and expected to provide answers. Likewise, each vice-presidential candidate is expected to go after the other.

 

To the American people, there is no secret that Pence and Harris are vastly different politicians from one another. The vice president is an Evangelical-Christian conservative while Harris is a staunch Democrat with one of the most liberal voting records in Congress.

Many people across the nation are eager to know what tonight’s vice-presidential debate shall entail. Thankfully, reports from Washington Examiner confirm that the Pence vs. Harris showdown will be quite eventful.

A Closer Look at Tonight’s Vice-Presidential Debate

Sources close to the Biden campaign confirm that Harris plans to go on the attack against Pence tonight. As many Democrats have attempted in the past, Biden’s running mate will allegedly work to portray the vice president as homophobic and bigoted towards the LGBT community.

Pence, on the other hand, may very well draw attention to Harris’ unfortunate pattern of religious discrimination. As a senator, Harris infamously issued religious test questions towards Catholic judicial appointees.

During previous occurrences, the vice president has gone after the California senator, branding her religious tests as “attacks on our freedom of religion.”

Additional areas where Pence and Harris are expected to butt heads include, but are not limited to, religious liberties, coronavirus responses, abortion, etc.

Precautions Against the Spread of COVID-19

Amid news of the coronavirus outbreak amongst Trump aides and White House officials, some extra precautions will be present during tonight’s debate.

In addition to both vice presidential candidates being stationed 13 feet apart from each other, Harris will have plexiglass surrounding her. Pence, on the other hand, has declined a fortress of plexiglass, citing it as unnecessary. The moderator overseeing tonight’s debate is also likely to be surrounded by plexiglass as an extra precaution.

Meanwhile, the vice president continues to test negative for COVID-19 and is already in Utah for tonight’s debate.
