Good evening I'm Bret -- Mitt Romney is hoping to take the ball and run with that after what was by most -- a winning performance in the first of three debates with President Obama.
Governor Romney running mate Paul Ryan will be at a rally in Virginia in just a few minutes the candidates are spreading out to some of the most hotly contested battlegrounds.
After -- gathering in Virginia he will move on to Florida tomorrow.
President Obama had an event in Denver -- was in Wisconsin today and goes on to Virginia and Ohio Friday.
We've fox team coverage tonight chief national correspondent Jim Angle has a fact check on last night's most heated issue.
Tax policy chief White House correspondent.
Henry has the Obama campaign reaction and plans moving forward but we began with chief political correspondent Carl Cameron on the first debate could even -- I have read other on the campaign could hardly be more excited about what happened last night in -- -- the debate ended they say they've been getting to donations per second.
As a measure of Mitt Romney's success.
The morning after -- general election debate debut against the president Mitt Romney made a surprise appearance to a thrilled and relieved audience of conservatives at the Colorado Conservative Political Action Conference.
Last night I thought was a great opportunity for the American people to see two very different visions for the country.
He reiterated a new attack revealed in last night's face off with -- president trickle down government that the president.
Proposes -- one work where he will raise taxes on small business which will kill jobs.
I instead want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs -- awoke to rave reviews across the country even Democrats admit he delivered virtually.
He just said about my tax plan is inaccurate that's the wrong way to go we know that the -- path we're taking is not working -- title.
This present your own airplane and your house but not your own facts.
-- set the tone in the opening moments quoting though not by name vice president Joseph Biden's.
Startling admission that the middle class has been buried over the last.
For years the people who are having a hard time right now are middle income Americans under the president's policies middle income Americans have been very.
They're they're just being crushed.
But normally buttoned up -- was loose and managed all the call the president an immature tipper without appearing angry or unlikable.
Governor Romney's central economic plan calls for a five trillion dollar tax cut.
On top of the extension of the bush tax cuts I don't have a five trillion dollar tax -- I don't have a tax cut of the scale that you're talking about high.
-- will not reduce the share paid by high income individuals.
I know that you and your running -- keeps saying that I know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people but it's just not the case but I got five boys.
I'm used to people.
-- something that's.
Not always true.
When it comes to health -- security -- was on offense too.
Touting what he passed in Massachusetts as an example of a bipartisan compromise and a model for the whole country at the state level.
We've seen this model work really well.
Governor Romney did a good thing working with Democrats in the state to set up -- what is essentially the identical model.
I like the way we did at a Massachusetts.
Entirely -- a partisan basis instead of bringing America together and having a discussion at this important topic you push through something.
That view and Nancy Pelosi Harry Reid thought was the best -- and drove it through.
What we did in a legislature 87% Democrat.
We were together whisking aside the tenth amendment which gives states rights for these kinds of things he is not the course for America to have a stronger more vibrant economy not.
-- delivered a conservative argument and criticism of the Obama agenda that the -- been clamoring for -- on the subject of Wall Street regulation came up he made more centrist approach repeatedly pointing out his support for regulation while eliminating it.
That I'd have regulation but I wouldn't designate five banks is too big to fail and give them a blank check.
That's one of the unintended consequences -- Dodd-Frank it wasn't thought through properly we need to get rid of that provision because it's killing regional and small banks.
And the -- -- ticket plans to pound the idea of the Obama agenda amounting to trickle down government.
Both Romney and his running mate will be appearing here at an event in -- -- Virginia today another campaign to stop and Old Dominion tomorrow and in Florida through the weekend preceding a big foreign policy speech on Monday brought.
All right Carl thank you.
