Kamala Harris has agreed to participate in a vice presidential debate with former President Donald Trump’s so-far-unnamed working mate only a day after Mr Trump and President Joe Biden agreed to 2 showdowns.

The Biden-Harris marketing campaign stated on Thursday that it accepted an invite from CBS News to participate in a VP debate both on July 23 or August 13.

It comes after Mr Biden and Mr Trump agreed to take one another on in two presidential debates on June 27 and September 10 to be hosted by CNN and ABC News.

If the VP debate is held on July 23, it might come shortly after the Republican National Convention. Mr Trump has stated that he could announce his working mate across the time of the conference.

“Well, I’m not in a rush and we’ll do it sometime around the convention, but we have a lot of great people in the Republican Party,” he instructed WPVI in April.

Some of those that look like vying for the working mate slot embrace North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, Ohio Senator JD Vance, former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, amongst others.

The Biden-Harris marketing campaign stated in a press release that it “has informed CBS News that we accept the network’s invitation to participate in a Vice Presidential debate, in studio, on either of two dates”.

“We look forward to the Trump campaign accepting one of these dates so that the full debate calendar for this campaign can be set,” the marketing campaign added.

The VP debate is about to observe the identical guidelines because the presidential showdowns – which means that there’ll be no in-person viewers, there shall be deadlines set on solutions, the prospect to talk will alternate between the candidates and a candidate’s microphone will solely be on when it’s their flip.

Much just like the presidential debates, the proposed dates are a lot earlier within the yr than throughout earlier campaigns. For occasion, Ms Harris took on then-Vice President Mike Pence in October 2020.
