Presidential Debate Draws Dozens to Listen and Laugh at the Lark

Voters eschew the Giants' game and weather the rain for a community presidential debate event at the Lark Theater.

Nobody could've faulted those headed to the Lark Theater in downtown Larkspur Monday night to watch the presidential debate if they'd made a last-minute detour for the Silver Peso to watch the San Francisco Giants advance to the 2012 World Series instead.

The room was filled primarily with Obama supporters and many of them said they thought he won the debate, continuing the momentum he established in last week's town hall event.
