Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., stands with her husband Douglas Emhoff while Vice President Mike Pence stands with his wife Karen Pence during the vice presidential debate Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020.

Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Wednesday engaged in a largely civil discussion of issues in their first and only debate appearance before the November 3 election.

The candidates did spar, albeit more politely, over the administration’s response to the pandemic, the economy, health care and climate change.
