On the Ryan Campaign Plane – Joe Biden’s stand in for Paul Ryan’s debate prep will be Ted Olson, according to Ryan spokesperson Brendan Buck.
The Republican attorney famously argued in federal court for same sex marriage and against Proposition 8. Paul Ryan is against same sex marriage.
At a LGBT dinner in Washington D.C. in March, the renowned attorney called the battle against Proposition 8 “the highlight of my life” and “this is the most important thing we’ve done in our lives,” according to the Washington Post.
The two have already squared off once this week, which is notable because it marks a difficult anniversary for the attorney: his wife was killed in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Ryan officially started debate prep last Sunday in Portland, Ore., but Olson was not on hand for that session.
Ryan and Biden will face off at the vice presidential debate on Oct. 11 moderated by ABC News’ Martha Raddatz.
