FARMVILLE, Va. (WIAT) — Tuesday evening, the GOP published an article declaring Republican VP nominee Mike Pence the “clear winner” of the debate, hours before he took the stage.

The website said, “Americans from all across the country tuned in to watch the one and only Vice Presidental debate. During the debate, we helped fact check and monitor the conversation in realtime @GOP. The consensus was clear after the dust settled, Mike Pence was the clear winner of the debate.”

The only problem, of course, is that the dust hasn’t even fallen. The debate will broadcast live tonight at 8 p.m. Central Time.
