The stage is set for a vice-presidential verbal battle with a fairly good chance one of the two could soon be calling the shots from the Oval Office. Current Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic VP nominee Senator Kamala Harris are set to square off in Salt Lake City, Utah, this evening.

This vice-presidential debate has a much different feel about it, as the two men running for the presidency are both in their mid to late seventies. In fact, both the 77-year-old Joe Biden and 74-year-old Donald Trump are the oldest candidates ever to lead the Democratic and Republican tickets. Statistically speaking, considering the presidential nominees’ ages, the odds create the possibility that one of these two VP candidates will become president sometime in the next four years.

COVID-19, the economy and socialism are all expected to be big topics tonight as Harris and Pence look to capitalize on some of the hot issues of the moment.

Meanwhile, President Trump on Wednesday evening posted a video to Twitter in which he discussed his COVID-19 treatment and called the Regeneron antibody drug he received a “cure.” The president also stressed how good he was feeling. “I view these, these weren’t therapeutic, they made me better, I call that a cure,” Trump said. “I walked in, I didn’t feel good, a short 24 hours later I was feeling great. I wanted to get out of the hospital.” Trump added, “I want everybody to get the same treatment as your president, because I feel great, I feel like perfect.”

Expect to hear more about that topic too from the podiums tonight
