The responses of local Republican voters to last night's Presidential debate echo what many pundits are saying nationally - that Presidential candidate Mitt Romney came out stronger than expected. Meanwhile, Democratic supporters of President Barack Obama say the President held his ground.

Approximately 100 supporters for Romney gathered last night at theĀ  Boone County GOP office to watch the first of a series of debates between Romney and President Obama.
