President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney faced off for the third and final time Monday night.

The debate took place at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. The focus was on foreign policy this time around.

The main topic during the debate was foreign policy. But the president acknowledged the need to pay more attention to our issues here at home as well. And Romney agreed.

The two men did agree on several issues. Each stressed support for Israel when asked about a U.S. response if the Jewish state were attacked by Iran.

Most overnight snap polls said the president won the debate.

With two weeks left until the election, the candidates will now put their focus back into campaigning.

Obama will campaign in Florida and Ohio on Monday, while Romney brings his message to voters in Nevada and Colorado.

FOX's Doug Luzader has more details in this video report.
