Siouxlanders tune in to watch presidential candidates debate

Posted:

So when it comes to domestic policy, did the presidential candidates deliver?

Siouxlanders were watching Wednesday night in their homes and at political debate parties.

Members of the republican party gathered in Sioux City to see how their candidate, Mitt Romney, stacked up against the incumbent.

Analysts say Romney needed to deliver in the debate to turn around the polls in battleground states.

Those gathered at the GOP watch party say he's ready to lead.

Meghanne Adams, a GOP supporter, "He is just a humble, sincere guy that does have America's best interest at heart and he is ready to be the president of the United States."

More than a dozen attended the GOP event.

Across town, democrats also had a watchful eye on the presidential match-up.

About 15 Obama supporters gathered to take in the first of three debates.

Folks here say they liked what they heard about the President's plan for the middle class and taxes.

"President has to put up a good defense of his four years in office and so far I think he's doing a good job of that. But he has to maintain that. And he has to hold out a message for the future," said Greg Guelcher, Woodbury County Democratic Party Chair.

Guelcher said he's glad they were able to hear specifics about the candidates' plans, which you sometimes don't get in political ads.
