"We have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur," Trump's senior campaign adviser Jason Miller reportedly told press on a call Wednesday previewing the debate between Vice President Pence and Harris in Salt Lake City.

"I'm personally more of a Biggie fan," Miller quipped, according to reports, but if Shakur is still alive, "we will have a ticket for Tupac."

Shakur, who used the stage name 2Pac, was killed in 1996 at 25.

Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign's communications director, confirmed a reporter's tweet indicating a ticket was being left for Shakur and that it was not a joke.

The move is a dig at Harris, who was asked last month at the NAACP's virtual convention about her favorite still-living rapper.

After Harris quickly named 2Pac, moderator Angela Rye reminded her that the famed rapper was no longer among the living. Harris said with a laugh, "Not alive. I know, I keep doing that!"
