Debate night: Joe Biden and Paul Ryan take the stage

Tonight Vice President Joe Biden and Governor Mitt Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, will take the stage in Danville, Kentucky for their first and only debate. It starts at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, and is expected to cover a wide range of issues.

The election conversation has been going strong on Twitter since last week in Denver. Since that debate, in fact, there have been about 4 million campaign- and debate-related Tweets sent. As they prep for tonight, Vice President Biden and Rep. Ryan are sharing behind-the-scenes photos and tweeting out messages to rally their followers. And tonight’s debate moderator, ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz has been sharing her sojourn to the stage too:
