Virginia, Oct 5: Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the running mate of Democrat Hillary Clinton, and his Republican rival Indiana Governor Mike Pence faced off for 90 minutes in the vice presidential debate of the campaign here.
According to BBC, Kaine sought to maintain his ticket's momentum as Pence aimed to stabilise Trump's bid after a turbulent week in which the billionaire admitted that he greatly benefited from "unfair" US taxes laws.
Trump himself said in a tweet that he will live tweet the debate. "I will be live-tweeting the VP Debate. Very exciting! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"
He also tweeted that Pence was "doing a great job -- so far, no contest!"

While his Democrat rival Clinton said: "Kaine just reminded Pence of the bigoted things Trump has said about millions of Americans -- and Pence couldn't defend it. #VPDebate"
