Vice presidential candidate and Senator Kamala Harris and current Vice President Mike Pence faced off in the first and only vice presidential debate Wednesday at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.
USA Today’s Susan Page moderated the event hosted at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The candidates and moderator were separated by plexiglass and more than 12 feet of distance from one another. Though an ER doctor interviewed by TheStreet says the current precautions may not be enough.
The debate followed President Donald Trump returning to the White House from Walter Reed Military Medical Center after testing positive for the coronavirus last week and a series of presidential tweets that have left markets questioning the future of fiscal stimulus.
Among the topics of focus were the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, racial divisions, police reform, the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, climate change and U.S. relations with China.
While the debate was widely better received than the first presidential debate, it also had its share of interruptions and violation of the response time allowed by Page.
