Vice President Mike Pence is set to debate Democratic challenger, Senator Kamala Harris, tonight. Carleton College political expert Steven Schier says viewership could be up for this debate…

“Usually, vice presidential debates don’t matter a great deal during a campaign, but this is no ordinary campaign season.”

Schier says tonight’s debate may in fact be a preview of a presidential debate, with Pence or Harris possibly assuming the mantle of the presidency in the next four years.
