Republican Strategist: 'Pence Should Be At The Top Of The Ticket'

Following the vice-presidential candidates’ debate Tuesday night, many Republicans said they wished Republican Mike Pence was the party’s presidential nominee.

According to a number of GOP operatives, the Indiana governor exhibited the style and substance that Donald Trump lacks. “Pence should be at the top of the ticket,” Republican strategist Charlie Gerow of Pennsylvania told Politico. The news site reported that Pence’s debate performance established him as a leading presidential contender in 2020.

Republicans, worried about Hillary Clinton’s recent rise in the polls, want Trump to stay on message with issues like trade and illegal immigration. The past couple of weeks, he has been more focused on subjects like a former Miss Universe and Bill Clinton’s sex life. “My greatest hope is that Gov. Pence participates in Mr. Trump’s debate prep,” former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo said.

Scott Reed, a political strategist with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, agreed. He advised Trump, in the next presidential debate on Sunday, to “go in with a set strategy and not chase every question and Hillary Clinton statement down rabbit trails.”

An activist associated with the real-estate mogul’s campaign told Politico: “Pence has been debating like that since he was in diapers. Of course, (Trump) has something to learn.” Seth Weathers, a political operative in Georgia, added: “I think Trump got to see again that you have to force the Clinton campaign back on the issues during debates. They are going to try to deflect to personal innuendo and accusations to avoid talking real issues.”
