SC governor speaks at Women for Romney event in NC
APEX, N.C. (AP) — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has made her second trip to North Carolina in less than a week, this time to help Mitt Romney and urge women voters to focus on economic issues in the presidential election.
Haley spoke to about 150 people at a “Women for Romney” event Monday morning in Apex. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Haley said issues such as contraception are not going to be the deciding factors for women choosing between Romney and President Obama.
Haley said women are “paying attention to everything,” including jobs, the economy and health care. She criticized arguments by Democrats than Republicans are creating a war on women, saying she doesn’t see one.
Haley attended a Pat McCrory for governor rally last Wednesday in Fayetteville.
