Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's running mates have spent almost the entire vice presidential debate savaging the other's boss.
It's the only time Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine will face off in the run up to the November election in the United States.
Between the big hits there was relentless niggle - camp Clinton pushing its theme of a bigoted Mr Trump, but for every left hook there was a right.
The candidates wasted no time launching broadsides against Republican Mr Trump and Democrat Ms Clinton in the opening minutes of their face-off at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, on Tuesday night.
"Donald Trump always puts himself first," Mr Kaine, a US senator from Virginia, said. He pointed out that when Mr Trump began his presidential campaign last year he called "Mexicans rapists and criminals" and had also voiced the "outrageous lie" that President Barack Obama was not born in the US.
Mr Pence, the governor of Indiana, shot back at Mr Kaine he and Ms Clinton "would know a lot about an insult-driven campaign" and then accused Ms Clinton, a former US secretary of state, of bungling foreign policy, with large sections of the Middle East "literally spinning out of control".
The debate was the only one featuring the vice-presidential contenders and came as Ms Clinton has edged ahead of Mr Trump in national opinion polls and in some November 8 battleground states where the election is likely to be decided.
