Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says running mate Mike Pence won the vice presidential debate in Virginia on ''the issues.'' Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visiting a charter school in Henderson, Nevada said he though his running mate, Mike Pence, won the vice presidential debate the night before. "He won. But he won on the issues, some would say he won on 'style'. The style doesn't matter. The issues, the policy matters," Trump said. The television audience for the U.S. vice presidential debate between Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine was estimated to be between 40 million to 50 million - in line with previous such matchups, according to media reports. Last week's first debate between presidential candidates Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton was watched by a record 84 million TV viewers. Vice presidential debates have traditionally attracted smaller TV audiences, with the exception of the 2008 encounter between Biden and Republican Sarah Palin, which set a record for a VP debate of 69.9 million viewers.
