Obama and Romney Debate Foreign PolicySubmitted: 10/22/2012

BOCA RATON, FL - For the last time before next month's general election, President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney faced off in a debate.

CBS's Bob Schieffer moderated Monday night. He led the candidates on a fairly specific focus: foreign policy.

China was brought up a handful of times, but it was the Middle East: namely Libya, Syria, and especially Iran and Israel, that were the big talking points.

Military spending was another focal point. Romney attacked the President for what he claims are major cuts in funding.

President Obama countered by saying our armed forces have never been stronger, even though their sheer size is shrinking.

The candidates finished with their pleas for your vote. The election is just two weeks from Tuesday.

WISCONSIN/THREE LAKES - Wisconsin continues to be the best state nationwide when it comes to producing cranberries. One Northwoods farm is preparing to make this year even better.

James Lake Farms in Three Lakes harvested close to 8,000 barrels last year. They hope to meet those expectations this year.

Right now they are in the growing season. The assistant manager believes Wisconsin is a natural environment for growing cranberries.

"It's fairly consistent as compared to somewhere out on the coast where most of the other cranberries are grown. I think a lot of those things combined help make it a good place to grow," said James Lake Farms Assistant Manager Benjamin Riker.
