Pence plays Covid defense and other things to watch at the vice presidential debate

12 days ago   |   By Politico

Mike Pence has the toughest job in politics tonight: defending Donald Trump's pandemic response.
He'll have a lot of material to work with. The coronavirus pandemic is raging, with the president - himself infected - leaving the hospital only Monday.

But the fact remains that Pence was in close contact with dozens of people...
