Someone at the Republican National Convention hit publish too early

Hours before the vice presidential debate had even began, the RNC published a blog post declaring Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence the debate winner, even highlighting "top moments" from the debate before Pence exchanged any words with Democratic VP nominee Tim Kaine.

"The consensus was clear after the dust settled, Mike Pence was the clear winner of the debate," read the post, which highlighted Pence's top moments — which they said included the economy and "Highlighting Hillary's scandals."

"[Trump's] running mate perfectly shared Trump's vision to make America great again and that message is resonating with Americans all across the country," the post reads.

Numerous other anti-Clinton posts went live on the site, including one which declared her the loser of the VP debate.

Another post complained about questions Kaine wasn't asked in the debate.
