The Republican National Committee is declaring a winner before the vice presidential debate even begins.
A blog post is already available on the party's website claiming victory for Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence. The post also offers a preview of what Pence will talk about. It lists his "top moments" as the economy and "highlighting Hillary's scandals."
Pence squares off at 9 p.m. against Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine. It is their only debate of the cycle.
The blog post goes on to call Trump "the other clear winner" of the debate.
