DANVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Jan Crawford is an old newspaper reporter who’s been with CBS News for 3 years.
She said Thursday’s debate was very important because the presidential race is closer than ever.
“All the polls in the swing states show them tightening, in some Romney has even taken the lead, so it will go down to the wire.
We’ve got less than 4 weeks to go in this race and we may not know until the very end on election night,” Crawford said.
Crawford says covering this across the country has been a wonderful experience.
“You’re struck by how amazing our democracy is and to be able to see that day after day, state after state from one coast to the other is really an inspiring thing and I feel really fortunate to be able to cover this for CBS News and tell our viewers about these important issues that will decide the future of our country,” Crawford said.
Those who did not have a ticket to the debate, including many Centre College students, watched the two candidates go at it outside from the debate festival.
The festival began at noon and featured live music all day.
It was just one part of the debate experience for journalists from around the world.
Everyone we talked with enjoyed the Danville hospitality.
Daniville, A small town with the huge task of hosting a Vice Presidential Debate and everything seems to have gone smoothly.
