the most problematic issues so far in her campaign for president. clinton's performance gave her a commanding win in last night's debate. that is the consensus all over social media this morning. nbc analysts say that she did not slip and skillfully diverted attempts to shake her. when given the chance she slammed the gop. >> they don't mind having big government to interfere with a woman's right to choose and to try to take down planned parent hood. they're fine with big government when it comes to that. i'm sick of it. >> they're defending positions on policies to appease polls. she also addressed her role as secretary of state on the handling of benghazi. now some insight from nbc's "meet the press" moderator, chuck todd tweeted clinton was easily the most polished and prepped candidate on stage. wasn't even close. sanders isn't going anywhere. not sure o'malley did anything to change the current trajectory of this race and on webb, this treat, most dems learned more
about how he disagrees with the base in a lot of issues. vice president joe biden noticeably absent of the big debate but not out of the bigger picture. nbc pea lit call analyst mark murray tweeted if you were joe biden and you were waiting for clinton to mess up to get in, you didn't get it at all. nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker will talk about biden's potential run and how the debate affects it. that's coming up on "today" after "news 4 today." donald trump took a shot at the whole pool of candidates. he tweeted, quote, all are very scripted and rehearsed, two at least should not be on the stage. jeb bush tweeted, if you think this country is on the wrong track, hillary clinton just told you she has no interest in changing direction. i sure will. governor mike huckabee had possibly the strangest reaction. he tweeted, quote, i trust bernie sanders with my tax dollars like i trust a north korean chef with my labrador.
donald trump will be in virginia later today. the republican presidential front-runner will hold a campaign at the richmond international raceway. in a statement he said he expects 10,000 people to show up for the event at 7:00 tonight. trump is the second gop presidential candidate to visit virginia's capitol this month. ohio governor john kasich held a town meeting at the university of richmond last week. >> chuck is here. we're going to start with a chill phase for the season now. >> yeah, we're done with the warm weather. 78 degrees yesterday. shorts and t-shirts abounded across the national mall when i was out running. that will not necessarily be the case as we'll lose about 10 degrees this afternoon. there's another big drop in temperatures coming our way as we head into the weekend. as i mentioned, yesterday 78. by the weekend, saturday and sunday afternoon highs will be 20 to 25 degrees colder than that. still a couple of clouds in our sky this morning but these are outbound clouds, not rain makers. it will be dry today. 56 at national airport.
