Gov. Scott Walker: Mike Pence didn't 'take the bait' during VP debate

Campaign 2016 Clinton Kaine-5 Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine D-Va.,will make a campaign stop at CMU in Pittsburgh on Thursday

This has led some to argue Pence won the debate. He was also more consistent in painting the Democratic ticket as career politicians unwilling to shake up Washington. Kaine said he and his wife trust Clinton "with the most important thing in our life" - their son, a Marine who would serve under Clinton if she wins.

"Senator, you and Hillary Clinton would know a lot about an insult-driven campaign".

Pence acted as the longtime conservative orthodoxy practitioner that he is and Trump is not. Perhaps former President Bill Clinton most concisely summed up Democrats' takeaway when he said underwhelming that his wife's running mate "did just fine".

Records obtained by The New York Times showed Trump suffered more than $900 million in losses in 1995 that could have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for as many as 18 years.

While some are criticizing Kaine for being too aggressive, Neal thinks neither did any damage to their running mates.

Social issues were a bigger part of the conversation than in the first presidential showdown, reflecting both candidates' religious faith. But Democrat Tim Kaine was claiming mission accomplished for forcing his opponent to confront some of Donald Trump's controversial remarks. He also pointed to Trump's assertion that women should face some kind of "punishment" for abortion, a comment Trump later walked back. "The "Never Trump" crowd, they see somebody who's firmly ensconced in the Republican party, has a long history with the party and has held elected office before, I think seeing someone like that might assuage some of their fears that the ticket itself is not something that they want to support".

Stewart said Kaine's exchange about September 11 was "embarrassing" and may influence some Virginia voters. "He's got like a personal Mount Rushmore: Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Moammar Gadhafi and Saddam Hussein".

"Hillary Clinton had a private server in her home that had classified information on it about drone strikes, emails from the President of the United States of America were on there", Pence said.

Kaine quickly shot back, "I can't believe you are defending the position that there's no bias".

During the vice presidential debate on Tuesday night, Indiana Governor Mike Pence fought hard to erase any memory of some of the more absurd statements Donald Trump has made over the course of the election cycle.
