On Wednesday night at 9:00 PM EST, the Vice Presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence will kick off at the University of Utah. I’m curious to get some thoughts on what we should expect. I think Trump’s positive COVID-19 test could make things even more interesting as Pence is the leader of Trump’s coronavirus task force. It’ll be interesting to see how Harris navigates the virus. She has to find a way to criticize the administration’s COVID-19 response without coming off as insensitive to Donald Trump’s health. I think that’s the big thing to watch for. What are your thoughts?
Nate Silver tweeted that he thinks Harris could refuse the debate on the grounds that Pence needs to be in quarantine. Any thoughts on that? Could that strategy fly? I don’t think so provided Pence doesn’t test positive.
