Attendees saw a stark contrast between Dittmar and her opponent. Additionally, attendees once again saw the strong similarities between Garrett and Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. Dittmar offered her pragmatic, solutions-oriented approach to important issues to the voters of the 5th district: job creation and infrastructure—both key components of her economically driven platform. Garrett, however, responded to questions with platitudes and misdirection, rarely answering questions directly.
Garrett, as seen in previous debates, is known to respond combatively to questions he doesn’t like or negative audience reactions to his answers.
