ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Vice presidential debate moderator Elaine Quijano tried her best to keep the conversation moving forward after the candidates went at one another over Democrat Hillary Clinton's use of her private e-mail server while Secretary of State. Quijano was trying to move the debate topic onto war in Syria, when Pence asked for more time to talk about Clinton's e-mails. Eventually, Quijano had to wrangle the two back to the discussion. The two were facing off at the vice presidential debate at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Farmville, a town of 8,000 nestled in the heart of central Virginia, got a rare spell in the limelight on Tuesday night when U.S. vice presidential candidates faced off at Longwood University in their only debate of the general election campaign. Democrat Hillary Clinton has led Republican Donald Trump in national opinion polls in recent months. On Tuesday, an average of polls aggregated by RealClearPolitics website showed her with 48.1 percent of support compared to Trump's 44.3 percent.
