Following tonight’s town hall debate between President Obama and Governor Romney, Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Rick Palacio offered the following reaction:
“From a vision for economic growth to energy independence, from a sensible immigration system to the duties of our commander in chief, President Obama articulated the vision our country needs to move forward while holding Mitt Romney accountable for promises and an agenda that cater to the wealthy and the ideologically extreme.
“For many people, the choice in this election was crystallized by an issue Governor Romney first saw as a political advantage. When the discussion turned to the recent attack in Libya, President Obama seized responsibility as our leader and our commander in chief, while Mitt Romney attempted to trot out a talking point that was immediately fact-checked as false. On countless issues, this has been the pattern we’ve seen in this election.”
