The vice presidential debate ended Thursday night...but cleanup was only beginning Friday morning.

Centre College representatives say around 80 maintenance workers will be tearing down what was up for debate festivities throughout the weekend.

And businesses in Danville agreed--having the international occurrence in their city was worth it.

Stores that sold debate-themed items saw a lot of it go with the masses.

Maple Tree Gallery, which sold political soaps in a 'soap poll', saw all its republican bars out with buyers.

Thoroughbred Threads, a clothing business that had the market on 'Centre Debate 2012' merchandise, sold over a thousand different t-shirts, polos, and caps.

"I'm anxious to see some of my regular customers and...and get back more into the flow of things," said Karamel Kreations owner Beth King.
