Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak reviewed the first Republican debates with Chad.

Hasty and Mackowiak talked about the performances from candidates, who will benefit most from the debates, and who was not particularly strong.

About former Texas Governor Rick Perry's performance, Mackowiak said, "I thought Perry did really well." Mackowiak continued on Perry's appearance saying, "I do think he put away  the 'oops' moment, erased that for a lot of people."
