Central Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock calls the second presidential debate a tie. The Republican from Peoria says he doesn't think the event will impact the race nearly as much as the first debate.
"Gov. Romney had momentum going into the debate and I think because President Obama and Mitt Romney were both strong, I don't think anything was done to change that momentum"
Schock says Romney is in a good position since he's leading in most swing states and tied in Ohio, where he had been running behind. Schock spoke following an appearance before the Normal Rotary Club. Schock has stepped up his campaigning in Bloomington-Normal since a part of McLean County is included in the new 18th district. The incumbent is trying to fend off a challenge from Democrat Steve Waterworth for re-election to Congress.
