The Romney campaign announced on Wednesday a Women for Mitt coalition, led by Ann Romney, to reach out to women voters. The announcement came just hours before President Obama is introduced by women's rights activist at a rally in Colorado.
“I’m proud to be heading up this effort to reach out to women voters,” Ann Romney said in a press release. “There is no doubt that women will play a critical role in determining the outcome of this election, and that’s something Mitt understands well."
“Since President Obama can’t run on his record, he’s resorted to scare tactics to distract and divide women – namely, the so-called 'War on Women,' which is a total myth," Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said. "The women of America aren’t falling for it.”
The release names dozens of women to an advisory board and as honorary co-chairs, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Senate candidate Carly Fiorina and just about every female Republican in Congress and higher-ups in state governments.
