Tuesday, October 4, 2016, the two major party Vice Presidential candidates met for a nationally televised VP debate. The Chairman of Donald J. Trump’s River Region campaign, former State Representative Perry Hooper Jr. commented on the events claiming victory for Trump’s running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
Rep. Hooper said in a statement, “Pence took Kaine to the proverbial woodshed. I know no better way to put it. Pence was the perfect representative of the focused conservative policy expert that President Trump will surround himself with while Kaine on the other hand, was the erratic condescending liberal elitist that so typifies the establishment and the politics of the past. Pence concentrated on the policies needed to make America great again.”
Hooper said that, “Kaine wanted to waste time talking about beauty pageants that happened in the last century. Pence beat Kaine over the head with the Russian “reset,” Clinton’s email scandal, and the Clinton Foundation. Pence talked about bringing the country together; Kaine tried to further divide the country into groups of victims that needs the Democratic party to be their nanny.”
Chairman Hooper said that, ”According to one count Kaine interrupted Pence 57 times that prompted a scolding by moderator Elaine Quijano who herself was the target of Kaine’s interruptions. As Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway stated. “It’s the Clinton campaign who loves to throw around words like ‘sexism’ and ‘unhinged.’ They’ve got to be regretting those words on a night like tonight, when Tim Kaine looked like both.””
Former Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead said, “So proud to call the next Vice President and future President a friend. Mike Pence showed what a gentleman and steadfast conservative he is last night at the VP debate. If elected, he will be the most conservative Christian elected as President or Vice President since Ronald Reagan. I hope everyone who wants to see a change in D.C. will pray every day until the election for Trump/Pence campaign.”
Hooper concluded, “Last night’s debate made it abundantly clear that The Republican Ticket clearly has a vision and a plan to Make America Great Again. The Democrats are locked into the politics of the past pitting Americans against Americans as they stumble and bumble their way down the campaign trail. There was nothing in Tim Kaine’s performance that showed he could act like a president. Pence aced that test.”
Tim Kaine is the US Senator from Virginia and is a former Virginia Governor.
Gov. Pence served in the US House of Representatives before running for Governor of Indiana.
Donald Trump is the founder and CEO of his own company and has had several successful reality TV shows that made him a household name.
In the Real Clear Politics rolling average former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton has gained ground in the last week after a disastrous six week period which saw a monstrous post-debate lead evaporate into a statistical tie. Clinton now leads nationally 43.9 percent to Trump’s 40.1 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson is polling at just 7.4 percent; while 2.5 percent say that they are voting for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Neither third party candidate has been allowed on the debate stage and based on current polling it seems unlikely that they will get an opportunity to debate Trump or Clinton.
Sec. Clinton and Mr. Trump will debate on Sunday night, October at 8:00 pm Central time.
The Presidential election will be on November 8.
