Mike Pence flubs host university's name in VP debate opener

“Thank you to Norwood University for their wonderful hospitality and the Commission on Presidential Debates,” Pence said. “It’s deeply humbling for me to be here.”

Except the debate took place at Longwood University in the Virginia town of Farmville. “Norwood University” does not appear to exist.
