An ABC News analysis of last night's vice presidential debate found that both candidates topped Donald Trump's number of interruptions from last week's presidential face-off.

Kaine, Hillary Clinton's running mate, interrupted Pence a whopping 70 times last night, including 27 times in just the first 30 minutes. Pence interrupted Kaine a total of 40 times.

In comparison, Trump interrupted Clinton 39 times during their debate last week, versus only nine times for Clinton.

Pence spoke roughly two-and-a-half minutes longer than Kaine — similar to the three-minute difference between Trump and Clinton in the first presidential debate.
