For close supporters of Mitt Romney, the first debate was no fluke. It was a vindication of their support of a candidate they have been behind from the beginning. They are confident that the expectations are not too high for the GOP nominee, and he is capable of pulling off another impressive performance.
We talked live Tuesday on NBC12 First at 4 with Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz. Chaffetz is a strong Romney supporter and one of his top surrogates. He told us he was confident that Romney would perform well tonight and he responded to criticism that his candidate is loose with the facts.
