TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It's clear from Thursday night's Vice-Presidential debate, that both candidates fought hard. But, as far as who won? That depends on who you ask.

Vice-Presidential candidates squared off on all sorts of issues... while Tucsonans gathered at various places around the city to watch.

Republican Mike Ferrante came to learn more about candidate Paul Ryan and what he has to offer. "I don't know too much about him. I'm just starting to absorb as most folks are," said Ferrante.

Around 50 people, mostly Republicans, gathered in the patio at McMahon's Steakhouse to watch. "My first thought to Ryan's first response to the first question, he was very polished," said Ferrante.

Ferrante says his biggest concern is the economy and feels not enough has been done to improve it.

Over at the Democratic Headquarters near Speedway and Swan, viewers seemed frustrated as Paul Ryan talked about plans for social security and medicare.

Democrat Karla Garcia is mostly concerned about the U.S. Supreme Court and Women's Rights issues. She feel VP Biden aced the debate.

"It's going very great for VP Biden, he is doing a fantastic job at presenting the facts and he's really talking to the people," said Garcia.
