The discussion took place over Facebook Live.
Associate Professor Wioletta Dziuda

Harris Public Policy Professors William Howell and Wioletta Dziuda discussed via Facebook Live the more sedate October 7 vice presidential debate, which followed the chaotic, norm-shattering first presidential debate and President Trump's positive COVID-19 diagnosis. 

Topics discussed included candidates refusing to answer (or even engage with) a direct question, administering a free and fair election during a pandemic, and – naturally – the fly that landed on Vice President Pence's head.
