SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) – Tim Kaine is predicting a “scorched-earth” debate performance from Donald Trump tonight.

The Democratic vice presidential nominee says running mate Hillary Clinton will be cool and collected in the face of Trump’s likely insults and histrionics. Kaine made the comments at a campaign rally in Ohio, where he called Trump a “bully.”

Both campaigns have been using their debate guests as a tool to try to get inside their rivals’ heads. Trump is bringing Barack Obama’s half-brother, a Trump supporter. Clinton is bringing frequent Trump critic and billionaire Mark Cuban and Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman.
