Many viewers Tuesday night watching the Longwood Vice Presidential debate were noticing a difference between Senator Tim Kaine’s lapel pin and Governor Mike Pence’s.
Pence wore an American flag pin, the typical option for such an occasion.
Kaine, alternatively, wore a flag for Blue Star Families, a flag donned by family who have members serving in the military.
Many people watching and tweeting did not like the choice.
Earlier this year during the Democratic National Convention, when he accepted his nomination for Vice President, he wore the same pin.
The North Carolina GOP, however, thought the pin was something far less patriotic, tweeting “[Tim Kaine] wears a Honduras flag pin on his jacket but no American flag.”
Why do we have presidential debates?
