South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Monday reached out to suburban women voters Monday morning on behalf of the Romney campaign urging them to put aside social issues focus on bread and butter economic issues.
“Put all the commercials aside, back and forth – whether they are Obama commercials or Romney commercials – that's politics,” Haley told about 150 people at a Women for Romney event in Apex. “They are distractions.''
“But we are smarter than that,” Haley said. “Women balance and we balance budgets. We keep our priorities in line. For them to say there is a war on women. I am still looking for it. I haven't found it yet.''
“What I am seeing is women are paying attention to everything,'' Haley said. “We look at jobs. We look a the economy. We look at health care. Do we look at contraception? Yes we look at contraception. But I have friends who are pro life who are in the Democratic Party. And I have friends who are pro life who are in the Republican party. That is not what makes us decide who is going to be president.''
She was introduced by 2nd district Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of Dunn.
