U.S. Senator Rand Paul says Congressman Paul Ryan doesn’t have much pressure on him to win tonight’s vice presidential debate.

The debate, held at Centre College in Danville, will have Ryan facing off with Vice President Joe Biden.

After Republican nominee Mitt Romney rejuvenated his campaign in the first debate, some pundits have said the pressure is on Ryan to continue the momentum. But Senator Paul says Ryan should do just fine.

“Well I have a lot of confidence in him being able to present the ideas, present the debate. I’ve heard him speak both publicly and privately and I have no concern that he won’t be able to handle himself.”

The debate will air live at 9 pm.
