The Republican Party's website accidentally posted a review of Tuesday night's vice presidential debate early, declaring Indiana Gov. Mike Pence the winner before his face-off with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine even happened.

"The consensus was clear after the dust settled, Mike Pence was the clear winner of the debate," the blog post, which has since been removed, read.

But before the link could be scrubbed from the GOP's social media, readers who happened upon the errant post received some insight into Pence's "top moments" during the debate. It described Republican nominee Donald Trump's running mate as the "clear winner" against Kaine, his Democratic rival.

During the debate, the accidental post indicated, Pence bested Kaine by raising concerns over the state of the economy and attacking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for the numerous scandals plaguing her candidacy.

In addition to discussing his own record of accomplishments, the post said Pence was able to "perfectly" highlight what Trump hopes to accomplish, should he win the presidency.

"His running mate perfectly shared Trump’s vision to make America great again and that message is resonating with Americans all across the country," the premature post read.

The vice presidential debate Tuesday evening marks the one and only time Kaine and Pence will face-off and comes a little more than one week after Trump and Clinton held their first debate.
