2012 vice-presidential debate

Vice President Joe Biden and Republican vice-presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin met at Centre College in Danville, Ky., for the only vice-presidential debate of the 2012 election. The stakes were high, as the vice-presidential debate follows the first presidential debate of Oct. 3, in which President Barack Obama was widely seen as losing to the Republican presidential candidate, former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, leading to a surge in the polls for the Romney-Ryan ticket.
