Report: Scott Walker helping Mike Pence in debate preparations

Former Gov. Scott Walker may be out of office but he sure isn’t out of politics.

And now, it appears he has an assignment: helping Vice President Mike Pence in debate preparations.

According to a report Thursday by the Washington Post, Walker is “serving as Pence‚Äôs foil in practice sessions, effectively playing the role” of Democratic U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California. Several debate-related meetings were planned for Thursday, the Post said.

Harris is Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate and will meet Pence in one debate, Oct. 7, at the University of Utah.

It’s not the first time that Walker has helped Pence, the former Indiana governor.

During Pence’s 2016 debate preparations, Walker played the part of Democrat Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s vicepresidential running mate.

Walker didn’t confirm if he was working on debate prep this year.

In a text to the Journal Sentinel, Walker said: “I was happy to help my friend Mike Pence in 2016. Always glad to help him.”
