CHICAGO, ILÂ â€“ Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat BradyÂ released the following statement regarding the presidential debate:
â€œWithout a doubt, Gov. Romney handily won tonightâ€™s debate.Â Where Barack Obama offered talking points and platitudes, Mitt Romney offered details and facts.
â€œTonight, Gov. Romney made a compelling case for a new direction in America â€“ a case that resonates in a high-unemployment, high-taxation state like Illinois.Â Here in Illinois, we know what it means when Gov. Romney says middle class families are being crushed.Â We know what it means when Gov. Romney says small businesses need help.Â And we know what it means when Gov. Romney says government is devastating our coal industry.Â
â€œWe need to end the â€˜Obama-economy taxâ€™ on the middle class.Â We need a new direction in America â€“ and a new President.â€
