Obama, Romney find some agreement in final debate

BROOKLYN - The Battle in Boca is on the books and the 2012 presidential debates are history, but President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney did find some common ground during their final showdown.

The candidates were in Boca Raton, Fla. for a third face-to-face debate, which focused mainly on foreign policy. It wasn't as heated as the second town hall-style debate, but there were still plenty of jabs from both sides.

However, Romney did congratulate Obama for going after al-Qaeda leadership and taking out Osama bin Laden. They also both vowed to stand with Israel in the event of an attack from Iran, and both said they oppose U.S. military involvement in Syria.

The next and final test will happen Nov. 6 when voters head to the polls. The candidates are now sprinting to the finish, hitting key battleground states across the country to push people to get out and vote.
