Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker helped GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence prepare for Tuesday night's debate by playing the role of rival Democratic nominee Tim Kaine, but said Wednesday the Virginia senator was even more scripted than the mock debaters had anticipated.
"I think my lines weren't even as canned as his were last night," Walker told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "I took all the language that I heard Tim Kaine say for months and, in some cases, even years. He repeated almost word for word exactly the things that I said during debate prep."
Walker, who endorsed Trump after dropping his own bid for the 2016 GOP nomination, told the program Pence clearly won the debate, and while preparing, the mock debate team even anticipated Kaine would act as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's "attack dog."
"He put one attack after another after another," Walker said. "I thought Mike Pence did a nice job at not only knocking back those attacks, but then answering the question and refocusing the attention."
Walker said one of Pence's high points in the debate was when he brought up Clinton's "deplorables" comment.
"How can you lead this great country when you loathe half the supporters of your opposition?" Walker said.
