The Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee Mike Pence went to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and “rallied several hundred supporters at the Rockingham County fairgrounds.”
“Had a little debate last night,” Pence said. “It was at Longwood University and I was humbled and honored to be there. Donald Trump called me late last night from Nevada to congratulate me on the debate. That truly meant the world to me, it really did. Some people think I won. But I’ll leave that to others. You know, what I can tell you, from where I sat, Donald Trump won the debate. Donald Trump’s vision to Make America Great Again won the debate. And when we take that vision to every corner of Virginia and every corner of this great nation, this movement, that man and that vision are going to win all the way to the White House.”
Pence, just like he did on Tuesday before the debate, mocked the mainstream media for continuing trying and failing to wipe out Trump.
“They all keep telling each other the usual methods are going to work,” Pence said. “‘Now we got him. Now we found this thing he said. Now we found this thing he Tweeted.’ They think they finally done him in, but then you turn on the television the next morning and Donald Trump is still standing stronger than ever before in front of the American people. It’s funny to watch.”
After praising America’s police officers and military men and women, Pence framed this election as a chance to get real change in Washington, D.C.
“It really is remarkable when you think about the choice this election,” Pence said. “At the very moment America is crying out for something new and different, the other party has answered with a stale agenda in the most predictable of ways. It really is pretty amazing. At a time when people in both political parties are restless for change—we know we could have government as good as our people again—the other party has nominated someone who literally personifies the failed establishment in Washington, D.C.”
