Mike Pence and Kamala Harris vice presidential debate will have plexiglass barrier because of coronavirus concerns

Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris will face off in the only debate between the vice presidential candidates before the November Elections on Wednesday September 7, 2020 and some say it could be the most important vice presidential debate in American history.

The debate is set to take place Wednesday at the University of Utah and will be the first and only meeting between the two candidates. Susan Page, Washington bureau chief for USA Today, will moderate.

Pence has been rehearsing for the debate with Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, playing the role of Harris, the Axios website reported. Harris has been practicing with Pete Buttigieg, a fellow Democratic primary candidate, standing in for Pence – both men are from Indiana.

The pair will debate with a Plexiglass shield between them, according to the Associated Press, a precaution requested by the Biden-Harris campaign. And whereas Biden and Trump were separated by 7ft, Pence and Harris will be seated 12ft apart as an extra precaution. In another sense, they are worlds apart.
