Running mate did Trump 'proud' in VP debate: campaign

Republican candidate for Vice President Mike Pence exchanges with Democratic candidate for Vice President Tim Kaine (L) during the first vice presidential debate at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia on October 4, 2016Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence made the Republican nominee “proud” during the vice presidential debate, the campaign insisted Wednesday, as Trump and rival Hillary Clinton claimed victory on the morning after the showdown. Pence and Clinton’s number two Tim Kaine launched bitter attacks on the opposing camps during their fiery debate, essentially fighting a proxy war for their nominees, scrapping for every vote ahead of Election Day November 8. Several pundits, experts and other observers agree that Pence, the governor of Indiana, outshone his vice presidential rival Kaine by presenting a methodical and level-headed case for a Republican administration, and reassuring core conservatives who have grown nervous about how Trump would govern in the White House.
