Trump takes credit for Pence debate performance
WASHINGTON - Donald Trump is taking credit for Mike Pence's strong debate performance because it was "my first hire."
Trump, speaking Wednesday in Nevada, said Pence did "an incredible job" and "I'm getting a lot of credit" because the Indiana governor was his choice to be vice president.
The Republican nominee also said that Tuesday's debate allowed voters "to look first-hand at my judgment." And he said "you need judgment for people, for deals."
Trump chose Pence in July after days of very public ruminations about whom he should select as a running mate.
Pence squared off with Democrat Virginia Senator Tim Kaine in the lone vice presidential debate. Trump will hold his second debate with Hillary Clinton on Sunday in St. Louis.
