Valley voters weigh in on democratic presidential debate

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Here in the Central Valley voters are weighing in on who they want as their next president.

Local Democrats fired up here to support their favorite candidate, in the first democratic presidential debate.

"What we're hearing is a lot of substance...a lot of discussion of the issues some minor differentiation of the issues but it's far better than the entertainment we've seen with the republican debates," said Michael Evans of the Fresno County Democratic Party Chair.

Dozens packed the local democratic party headquarters. They were taking note of hot topics, like Hillary Clinton using a private email server while serving as Secretary of State.

"When Hillary was winning the debate she shut up. that's what we learn in law school that's what attorneys do when you're winning you don't say anything," said Hillary Clinton supporter Pat Brown.

For some Clinton is the obvious choice. While others want Bernie Sanders to take the helm.

"I think we really need to work on inequality issues, issues of just a few people in the country have too much money and I think it needs to be spread out more and I think sanders is the one who's really talking about that issue," said Bernie Sanders supporter Austin Hall.

Differences aside, this group of voters want a democrat to win the race.

There will be five more democratic debates before the Democratic National Committee chooses their nominee.
