There was a lot at stake for both of the President Barack Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney Wednesday night in Denver during the Presdiential debates and with less than 40 days until the General Election, the pressure is on to gain votes.
Debate watch parties have happened on all over country, including Sioux Falls and supporters from both political parties said the importance of these debates are to encourage people to hit the polls and cast their vote.
"People need to get away from some of the personal issues and focus on the actual issues of substance, healthcare, jobs, the economy," said Amanda Mack
"I think it's more important for those who are undecided, where they can listen to each side and start forming some opinions and go out there and see which facts they think are correct and do some research on that," said Jesse Fonkert.
Apart from listening to the back and forth debate on important issues, people at the parties had some fun and keeping track of how close both candidates were staying in their time limit of two minutes.
