Republicans holds watch party in Williamson County

We have yet to hear how the presidential candidates feel about their final debate performance, but we do know that, after the previous two debates, Republican nominee Donald Trump was very outspoken about who he believes were biased moderators.

Republicans in Williamson County met at the City Lights theater to watch Trump take on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in one last debate before the presidential election.

"We need someone to step in, shake things up and get the American economy moving again," said Bill Fairbrother, Chair of the Williamson County Republican Party.

After the previous two debates, Trump argued he was not treated fairly by moderators and the press.

"When you look at moderators of the debate, who were donors to the Clinton Foundation and there's other personal relationships there with the administration, it makes one wonder how fair the treatment he's receiving has been," said Fairbrother. 

"I think a lot of it has become negative because that's the type of campaign he's run. So I don't think the press has treated him unfairly, I think that they're treating him for the candidate he is,"
said John Bucy, Chair of the Williamson County Democratic Party.

Trump's accusations that the media was trying to sway the public came to a head after an audio recording of him from 2005 was released. In the recording, Trump talks about his ability to get away with grabbing women inappropriately because of his fame. After that recording, nine women came forward saying they were victims of such actions by the Republican nominee.

Trump said in a tweet that coverage of their accusations has "rigged" the election.

"I think he's grasping for straws at this point and the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, so many of them, all of them, all of the ones that are sound leaders, understand that this isn't a rigged election. The outcome will be legitimate," Bucy said.

"There are certainly some concerning allegations of voter fraud and abuse that are going on out there. Is it enough to tilt the election? Quite frankly, we're not going to know until November 8," said Fairbrother.

Early voting in Texas begins Monday the October 24.

Polls have shown only a minor lead for Trump in the typically red Lone Star State.
