State Party leaders are split about who won the final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last night in Las Vegas.
Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton fielded questions on a range of issues from U.S. Supreme Court appointments, terrorism, immigration, the economy, to fitness for the office of president. Trump says he would appoint conservative justices who support the 2nd Amendment and are anti-abortion. Clinton says she supports abortion rights and some control on gun sales. Bobby Moak, Chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, says Trump made one major blunder.
"There was probably one question that sealed it for her and that's when Mr.Trump refused to say he would accept the will of the voters," said Moak.
Trump has repeatedly said the election is rigged. Jim Herring, is a former Mississippi Republican Party chairman and is active in the party. He explains Trumps position.
"Trump was talking about there's a legal process to challenge and of course throughout American history there are many times when elections have been challenged," said Herring.
Clinton says she'll raise taxes on those earning over $250,000 per year, help the middle class and raise the minimum wage. Trump wants a massive tax cuts for businesses, which he says will stimulate job creation and economic growth. Jim Herring.
"If the people watching this look at that, to how they stood on the issues, well he won going away," said Herring.
In contrast, Moak says Clinton was the standout.
"Certainly I don't think she got beat on any of the issues whether it was the trade deals whether it was a clear difference on taxes," said Moak.
Both Bobby Moak and Jim Herring are claiming victory, saying their candidate probably gained some ground with undecided voters.
