PEORIA, Ill. -- Congressman Schock says both candidates firmly held their own ground despite getting feisty with one another at times.

Schock says he thinks both President Obama and Governor Romney showed up with their game faces on, tackling key issues like the economy, middle class, and foreign policy.

But when it comes to Election Day, the choice comes down to your vote.

"If you think the country is heading in the right direction, you're likely to vote for President Obama. If you don't think the country is heading in the right direction and you think the economy is in a world of hurt, and that we can do better, you're likely to give Mitt Romney a shot," said Schock.

He adds if both perform the same as last night next Monday, he thinks not a whole lot will change in how people will vote.
