WASHINGTON (AP) – The two vice presidential candidates unsurprisingly saw their running mates as debate winners.
Democrat Tim Kaine says Donald Trump “looked like he was running out of gas” and Republican Mike Pence accusing Hillary Clinton of launching “an avalanche of insults” at Trump.
They appeared on morning news shows Tuesday after the first debate between Trump and Clinton.
On NBC’s “Today” show, Kaine, said he thought Trump offered few specifics on policies, adding, “I don’t think he was prepared.”
Pence countered that Trump was “focused on the issues that the American people care about.” Pence also said he thought Trump came off as an agent for change while Clinton epitomized the Washington “status quo.”
Kaine and Pence will appear together in a debate Oct. 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.
