Statement: Senator Kaine Holds Pence's Feet to the Fire

You can't defend the indefensible

NEW YORK – High School Democrats of America (HSDA) National Communications Director Andrew Peng and Press Director Joshua Dantzler released the following statement in response to tonight’s vice-presidential debate:

Mike Pence simply could not defend Donald Trump’s indefensible record of business failures and insults in tonight’s debate, and Senator Kaine was prepared to hold his feet to the fire. On every issue that was raised, Pence either refused to answer the question, deflected, or flat-out lied – much like Trump himself.

“If there’s anything that we’ve learned in the past two debates, it’s that Secretary Clinton and Senator Kaine have the experience, the temperament, and the vision necessary to improve the lives of all Americans. Trump and Pence do not, and Americans must work to reject their dangerous ideas, bigotry and ignorance on Election Day.”
