"I thought Mitt Romney did a great job. The American people saw who he was, unfiltered. I think they liked what they saw. The president-that's what happens when you attempt to defend the indefensible," he said.
Nunelee, who is one of three Republican Congressmen from the Magnolia State, said the country is clearly in worse shape than it was four years ago, when Obama was elected.
"I think the American people don't need anybody to tell them who won or who lost. I think they looked at it and saw themselves. So, I think last night's the beginning of a great month."
The whole interview:
We got a statement from U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker's camp this morning:
The debate finally brought focus to the real issues facing our country -- the economy, job creation, and ways to cut the deficit. Gov. Romney outlined a strong plan to create jobs and put the American economy on the right track while pointing out that the policies of Pres. Obama have failed to work. The President tried at every turn to focus on anything but his record in office. The American people have a real choice for this election.
U.S. Congressman Bennie Thompson is the state's lone Democrat representative in Washington. We've gotten no word yet on his reaction to the proceedings.
