WASHINGTON (GRAY) - The 2020 vice presidential candidates will face off in the first and only vice presidential debate of the election season Wednesday night.
The debate is set to take place at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. The debate comes following the news that President Trump and a number of GOP lawmakers tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris have both tested negative. The candidates will debate from 12 feet apart to prevent spread of the virus.
The Washington Bureau team talked to lawmakers from both sides of the aisle about the upcoming debate. The full interviews can be seen below.
Rep. David Kustoff, R-Tennessee
Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee
