Local Voters React to First Presidential Debate


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) The first Presidential debate is now in the books.

In a contentious, but not overly hostile affair, President Obama and Mitt Romney traded jabs over how to bring jobs back, and other domestic issue sticking points.

Locals had strong opinions about what both candidates had to say.

"I thought it was a very good debate, I feel like Romney really answered his questions , both did very well” said Sarah Christopherson.

"I wasn't too impressed at all with the President and I thought he stuttered a lot and didn't have a lot of good answers or comebacks” said Brandi McMillen.

"I have to hear more about what they have to say and I also need to do some research outside of the debates. I just don't feel like I get enough information from the debates” Shannon McLean.

The next presidential debate is October 16, 2012 in New York.

The Vice Presidential candidates square off next week in Kentucky.
