Folks who work with the Nueces County Republican and Democratic parties held separate watch parties for Tuesday night's Presidential Debate. There, they analyzed what was being said by both candidates.
Both parties were pleased with their respective candidate's performance in the debate, which took on a town hall format.
Members from the Nueces County Republican Party gathered at BJ's Pizza on South Staples. All eyes were glued to the big screens as President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney answered questions from the audience, which consisted of 80 undecided voters.
"I think Romney is showing he is a good candidate," said Veronica Olsson. "That he can be the next president."
"Romney is coming out strong, talking about jobs, cutting spending, things that are kitchen table issue that people care about," Chris Duke said.
Across town, the Democratic Party of Nueces County held their watch party at its headquarters.
"We want to see what we saw in the first debate, and that's the plans and facts from President Obama," Joseph Ramirez said. "We've yet to see a plan from the Republican Party."
"He's going to tell us what his plan is," Alex Garcia, Jr., said. "How he plans to focus on the future, how he's going to create jobs, and how he's going to help us all."
The third and final Presidential Debate will take place at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22.
