SPOKANE, Wash. - While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were duking it out on stage in St. Louis, in Spokane, a crowd gathered at the Regal Cinemas at Northtown Mall to watch the second presidential debate.
The theater hosted a free party for anyone who wanted to attend. While many theater-goers were trying to catch "The Girl On the Train" or "Birth Of A Nation," dozens wanted to see the debate on the big screen.
"I was hoping they were going to give out rotten tomatoes or rotten eggs we could throw at the screen," Ann Finke said with a laugh.
Finke and her daughter attended the watch party. Finke said she would be rooting for Clinton.
Like millions of Americans, Finke was eager to see how Trump would respond to questions about the leak of an 11-year-old video in which he makes graphic and vulgar comments about women. Some felt he handled those questions well, but others say it could be the death of his campaign.
