Vice presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Mike Pence will debate tonight at the University of Utah. How might Harris’ record as a prosecutor impact the debate? Also, Mike Pence heads the White House’s task force on COVID-19 and will likely face questions about the outbreak unfurling in the White House, plus critiques that the administration is spreading misinformation about the disease.

Meanwhile in Los Angeles, District Attorney Jackie Lacey is seeking reelection as George Gascon, former San Francisco District Attorney and LAPD Assistant Chief, wants to take her seat. He says more needs to be done to overhaul law enforcement and protect the most vulnerable people.
