DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Both the College Republicans and College Democrats hosted watch parties on the University of Dayton's campus Tuesday night.
The College Republicans held a small get together at a home on Lowes Street. GOP supporters say they were hoping for another strong showing in this debate from Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The wanted Romney to continue to build momentum from the first debate.
Meanwhile, the College Democrats wanted President Obama to end Romney's revival by aggressively challenging him in this debate. The group sponsored a watch party, open to all students, at Alumni Hall. Democratic Congressman Richard Neal of Massachusetts was on hand for the event.
The key issues for all students seem to be jobs, education and healthcare.
"It literally makes me sick seeing where this country is headed. We're not headed in the right direction. I mean, these past four years have been absolutely miserable. I want a job when I get out of college and I know, in the Obama economy, that's absolutely not going to happen. I think that's the biggest issue for a lot of people and that's one of the big reasons why I'm voting for Mitt Romney," explains Jamie Leaver of UD's College Republicans.
"I'm voting for President Obama because I know he really cares about my education and making that education affordable, where as, Governor Romney told students to shop around. Also, I know President Obama really cares about my healthcare and, me, being able to stay on my parents' healthcare until I'm 26-years-old, is very important to me," says Daniel Pfister of UD's College Democrats.
Both groups agree, no matter the political affiliation, it's important for young adults to become informed on the issues and vote.
