Roanoke Democrats gather to watch debates and share who their front-runners are
ROANOKE, Va. - Thursday night was round two for Democratic presidential hopefuls, as the second half of the candidates battled it out on stage. The Roanoke City Democratic Committee was hosted a watch party at Food Fanatics Kitchen. The crowd definitely had a few favorite candidates going into it, but they were excited to watch it play out. Direct from Miami right to Roanoke, Democratic voters like Lauren Peterson were paying close attention. "What we got out of being together is a sense of community, and a feeling for how each other are thinking," Lazar said.
