Obama and Romney Appeal to Women Voters in New Hampshire

Aug 8, 2012

The campaigns of President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney were touting support from women today.

The Obama campaign released a report saying that the President’s policies enable greater access to healthcare for New Hampshire women.

Meanwhile, ‘Women for Mitt Romney’ hosted an event in Nashua to discuss welfare reform.

Four years ago, President Obama carried women voters by 13 percent. His pitch to women this election has focused on the healthcare overhaul.  

Mitt Romney’s latest ads focused attention to welfare. Romney criticized Obama Tuesday for fostering a ‘culture of dependency.’

In an election that will most likely be close, women’s support is critical in swing states—such as in New Hampshire.
