GREENVILLE, North Carolina (CNN) – Sarah Palin kept an eye on the presidential debate from the campaign trail in North Carolina, a traditionally red state turned battleground. The GOP vice presidential nominee mingled with the crowd at Boli’s on the Boulevard, a Greenville, NC restaurant, along with a few high-profile Republican VIPs, including both the state’s senators, Richard Burr and Elizabeth Dole.

After the debate, Palin praised McCain's performance, saying the night went "great."

"It was a great night for America. [McCain is] proposing real plans that will work for economic recovery and energy independence," she said. "I think Barack was even less candid than usual, which I was kinda surprised. But McCain has fought on and sounded very energized, and it was a good night for him, for all of us, for all of America."

What's ahead? "It's gonna be a great 28 days to go," she said. "Taking this message of reform on the road and just having it resonate more and more every day is what I believe’s happening. And it's good. It's very good. I look forward to the 28 days."

Palin joins McCain tomorrow for campaign events in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
