WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump’s running mate plans to spend the weekend before the one and only vice presidential debate off the campaign trail preparing back home in Indiana.
Mike Pence’s spokesman Marc Lotter said Thursday that the Indiana governor plans to spend the weekend relaxing with his family and continuing with his preparation for Tuesday’s debate against Democrat Tim Kaine. Pence spent two days in Wisconsin this week doing mock debates with Gov. Scott Walker, who was standing in for Kaine.
Lotter says Pence has been preparing for the debate since being picked as Trump’s running mate.
Trump has faced criticism for not preparing as much as Hillary Clinton for their debate on Monday that was watched by more than 84 million people.
