San Diego Democrats set debate viewing party at Bamboo Lounge

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Democrats for Equality and the San Diego County Young Democrats invite supporters to join them for a presidential debate viewing party tonight in Hillcrest.

The Democrats will beet from 6 to 7:30 pm tonight at Bamboo Lounge, 1475 University Ave., San Diego, CA 92103

Tonight is the second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and the Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues.

The debate is considered crucial for Obama, who was widely criticized for a weak performance in the first face-off with Romney. The GOP candidate has been running for president for at least the past six years and has become a seasoned debater.

The first debate scored huge ratings, and the second one is expected to draw an even bigger audience.
