Reaction to Springfield Senate debate

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A lot of ground was covered during Wednesday night's debate, and reaction was mixed as to which candidate did a better job.

"I thought Elizabeth Warren knocked him out of the park," said Maryelen Calderwood.

"I wasn't impressed by Elizabeth Warren," said Anne DeMusis.

"I'm a Scott Brown supporter," said Ron Lariviere. "I think he's got the right answers, I think he's the right man for the right time."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the debate, I enjoyed both participants but especially Mrs. Warren," said Walter Haggerty. "She was more on target with what my interests are."

More than 2,000 audience members filled Symphony Hall for the third debate between Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren.

"It was a real effort on the part of both candidates," said Haggerty.

It was the only debate held here in Western Mass, and most of the questions were submitted by area residents.

"I think they touched on everything," said Calderwood.

Supporters for both of the candidates lined the streets throughout the day. And during the debate, despite being told to keep quiet, there were several rounds of applause from audience members on issues like debt for students, Medicare cuts and healthcare.

"I thought it was a good, spirited debate and I think we saw both candidates and their views," said Donald Blais.

The candidates have one more scheduled debate before the election on Oct. 30.
