Area Republicans came out to the Romney Macomb-Utica Victory Center in Utica to watch Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama square off during the second presidential debate Tuesday night.
Before the town hall debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, kicked off, volunteers at the center, located at 13285 Hall Rd, made hundreds of calls to identify local Republicans and convince them to vote for Romney.
"I have been volunteering for years because I believe in the Republican philosophy, which is work hard and get what you want," said Harvey Sainsbury of Chesterfield Township.
The crowd cheered for Romney when he said, "This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he would do."
