Washington, October 7: Vice President Mike Pence and his Democratic challenger Senator Kamala Harris are all set for a debate in the Salt Lake City of Utah on Wednesday. This will be the first time that an Indian origin person will be taking up the podium for a vice presidential debate.

Political analysts believe that Harris, 55, will easily prevail over Pence, 61, during the only vice-presidential debate and help her running mate Joe Biden to widen his lead over Donald Trump.
