Susan Page will be delivering the questions when Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris face off Wednesday night.
Page has covered 10 presidential campaigns and six presidential administrations, according to USA TODAY. She’s interviewed the past nine presidents, three of them after they had left office. She’s also reported from dozens of countries on six continents, according to the White House Historical Association.
Page said her first ever interview with a president was Ronald Reagan. She told C-SPAN in 2019 that she was so awed by being in the Oval Office and talking to the president, that she did a terrible interview.
“So if you want to get something spontaneous or new or real, you need to be at the top of your game. So I took a lesson from that terrible interview I did with Ronald Reagan. And the best presidential interview that I’ve done, I think, was with Bill Clinton and – who was easy to interview because he was willing to engage. He knew a lot about policy,” Page said.
Susan Page (born February 12, 1951) is an American journalist and biographer, and the current Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today.
