On Tuesday, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence meets his Democratic counterpart, Tim Kaine, in a 90-minute debate. Here's what you need to know about the man who could be "one heartbeat away from the presidency."

Before serving in elected office, Mike Pence hosted a local radio talk show in Indiana, where he described himself as "Rush Limbaugh on decaf." Pence's name has long been mentioned in the national conversation; he was considered as a top candidate for president heading into both 2008 and 2012 before declining to run.

On July 15, Donald Trump tapped the Indiana governor to round out his presidential ticket.
