Area GOP Hold Debate-Watching Fests
The Republican Party of McHenry County gobbled pizza at Crystal Lake's Cottage pub while they watched. Kane County did it on a township basis with Dundee Township GOP meeting at Emmet's Tavern in West Dundee to nosh on chicken wings.
GOP stalwarts cheered Romney's “Virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate” line to the President as Algonquin Kane County Board incumbent Maggie Auger and husband Ray circulated through the small crowd.
State Sen. Chris Lauzen running for Kane County Board Chairman headed the list of local luminaries at the event. Lauzen shadow boxing a blow to the Presidential solar plexus when Romney denied asking for a $5 trillion tax cut and charged Obama spending plans would "raise taxes by $3,000 to $4,000 on middle-income families."
The national consensus this morning was that neither presidential candidate scored a knockout or even drew blood but Romney might have been ahead on judge's points when the bell rang. Next up on the card will be the exciting Vice-Presidential Debate next Thursday.
