Republican and conservative stalwart Bay Buchanan believes Mitt Romney scored a major victory in his Monday showdown debate with President Barack Obama. She shared her insights in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV from Boca Raton, Fla., site of the debate.
“Mitt Romney did unbelievably well,” said Buchanan, who is a conservative commentator. “He was remarkable. He came across as Presidential, an individual. Absolutely clear understanding of the issues and the challenges America faces. And he made out his vision as to how we can really influence those challenges.”

Buchanan was named U.S. treasury secretary by President Ronald Reagan in 1981. At 32, she was the youngest person ever named to that post. She also managed her brother, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan’s, three campaigns for President. After leaving Treasury in 1983 Reagan named her chair of the President's Commission on Women Business Owners.
She knows her way around campaigns and believes Romney has found a winning formula that resonates with voters and should win the election on Nov. 6. She also had definite ideas on how President Barack Obama came across in the three debates.
“I think the President did not look like the President, I think that Mitt Romney looked like the true Commander and Chief, ready to take over tomorrow,” Buchanan told Newsmax.
Buchanan stressed Romney’s vision is clearly defined and different from what Obama has done for the past four years and what might happen if Obama was re-elected. The debates framed each man’s vision for America and Buchanan believes a clear choice emerged.
“The Governor made it very clear that war is not the answer that it is a very last resort and in one problem area after another he explained why that would not work, she said. “Why that is not where we are going. I think with women, the number one issue clearly, is the economy. It’s jobs, they want to get back to work. They want their families to be back at work and they want a clearer and brighter future for their children. Mitt Romney laid it out and showed us how you do that here and abroad.”
