Mitt Romney and President Obama square off during their first debate in Denver.
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Nevada Republicans watched Wednesday night's presidential debate closely, hoping Mitt Romney's performance will swing the Silver State in his favor.
The GOP faithful at Nevada Republican headquarters at Tropicana Avenue and I-215 told FOX5 they believe Romney did an outstanding job and that President Barack Obama was clearly rattled.
"He came across so personal, so spontaneous. I was very impressed," said Romney supporter Laura Graves.
"He was able to lay out our policy positions and really articulate why he's a better choice for this country and (the) presidency," said Nevada Republican National Committee spokesman Darren Littel.
Before the debate, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal rallied for Sen. Dean Heller at party headquarters. He said the choice when it comes to the president is clear, and undecided voters in Nevada should listen to the debates closely.
"The reality is the president did his best. It's not the best for America. Gov. Romney understands not redistributing wealth, growing the economy, saving the American Dream for children and grandchildren," Jindal said.
