Presidential campaigns target women voters

Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant, whose state is holding a Republican presidential primary on Tuesday, predicted that Mitt Romney will be the winner, largely on the strength of his ratings with women.

“Fifty percent of the people voting in this primary will be women,” Bryant said. “Governor Romney has a great favorability rating with women, and I think a southern female professional woman is going to say: Tthat’s who I want to vote for.'”

While the president hits the campaign trail again on Friday with stops in Chicago and Atlanta, according to the Democratic campaign, even as it focuses on the women’s vote, the president won’t be personally involved in female outreach. One of his supporters explained why.
