In Episode 24 of Capitol Fight Club, John Gray, Brian Darling, Sam Sacks and Sam Knight battled over who won Tuesday night's vice presidential debate and what recent revelations about Donald Trump’s taxes tell potential voters about his candidacy, if anything.
Round 1 centered around whether Senator Tim Kaine or Governor Mike Pence won Tuesday night’s VP presidential debate, with a surprising 3-1 vote split on the winner, and what Kaine and Pence’s stances on foreign policy and abortion could mean for their respective running mates in November.
Round 2 centered around the recent New York Times story about Donald Trump’s 1995 tax returns and what that means for Trump’s business narrative, as well as a similar-yet-underreported story about Hillary Clinton from two years ago.
