Wednesday evening, President Barak Obama and Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney squared off in their first debate.
18th District Congressman Bob Gibbs (R-Lakeville) says it’s important for voters to learn about both candidates and says debates provide a great platform for candidates to truly express their thoughts on a host of important issues.
Meanwhile, Tuscarawas County Republican Party Chair Doug Wills says a couple hundred Romney/Ryan as well as other Republican Party candidate yard signs were stolen after Wednesday’s debate.
Wills says people have the right to place political signs on their personal private property or at their private business without fear of having them stolen.
Wills says the local Republican Party will do what it can to get the stolen signs replaced as soon as possible.
But he says replacing the Romney/Ryan signs will take some time.
The next presidential debate is set for the 16th at Hofstra University in New York.
