YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took place in St. Louis Sunday night.

Meanwhile, WKBN got reaction from the chairs of both the Mahoning County Democratic and Republican parties.

David Betras, chairman of the Mahoning County Democratic Party, said: “I think that you’re seeing the temperament between Hillary Clinton and Donald trump. Donald Trump wants to attack, demean, deflect. Hillary Clinton is very presidential, very composed.”

Mark Munroe, chairman of the Mahoning County Republican Party, said: “I think on each  issue they touched on — taxes, ISIS,  the economy — Trump had the upper hand and I think that’s what we’ve been looking for. That’s what we’ve been hoping for and tonight we saw it.”
