Why The Vice Presidential Debate Is Important

The vice presidential nominees, Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Governor Mike Pence (R-IN), face off in their only debate tomorrow night. The importance of this debate may seem insignificant to most voters but this election has changed that significantly. Since the GOP nominee at the top of the ticket is entirely unfit to be president, voters need to take a closer look at his running mate. If you think Donald Trump is extreme, Pence and his agenda is even worse. It’s rare that the vice president becomes the president but in the case of a Trump presidency the odds are greater for that to happen. Trumop has made no bones about Pence taking the lead on domestic and foreign policy decisions while He, Trump sits in the oval office “making America great again.” There was even a hint to the New York Times that he would resign shortly after being inaugurated making Pence the president. While Trump alone is pretty scary, the thought of a President Pence should frighten any voter with an iota of sense into the voting booth.

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid and her panel discussed what the extremely conservative Mike Pense represents.

The debate is tomorrow night, Tuesday, October 4 from 9 PM ET to 10:30 PM ET. Check your local listings but it will be broadcast on C-Span. This is important.
