PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - It may be several days before the impact of last night's chaotic debate between President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden is seen.

While President Trump has received criticism for his confrontational style in the debate, Republican Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says Biden seemed unsure.

“I felt that at times Joe Biden was lost, he clearly had a hard time answering direct questions,” Congressman Reschenthaler said during the KDKA Radio Morning Show on Wednesday.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald calls President Trump's performance an embarrassment, and believes Biden got his points across.

“It reminded me of a three-year-old who was stomping his feet, saying, you know, look at me, look at me,” Fitzgerald tells KDKA Radio.
