SCRANTON -- Some students in our area gathered to watch the vice presidential debate.
Young voters on both sides of the aisle organized a watch party at the University of Scranton.
"We're very excited, especially since these candidates are less well-known, so I think this is really going to tell us about who they are as people and where they stand as policymakers," said Sarah Laga, College Democrats.
"I think it's good to see the student body get in the political process. A lot of schools that I went to visit, the students are kind of oblivious to it. I think the U does a good job," said Tom Meehan, College Republicans.
