WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee declared a winner before the vice presidential debate even began Tuesday night.

A blog post is already available on the party’s website claiming victory for Donald Trump’s running mate. The post also offers a preview of what Pence will talk about. It lists his “top moments” as the economy and “highlighting Hillary’s scandals.”

Pence squares off at 6 p.m. (PT) against Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine. It is their only debate of the cycle.

The blog post goes on to call Trump “the other clear winner” of the debate.
