  • Women share their reasons for being at the Republican National Convention

    NBC News - 08/29/2012

    NBC’s Michael O’Brien reported Tuesday on the Republicans’ need to capture the support of women from Democrats, noting:

    “Obama led Romney 51 percent to 41 percent among women in the August NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, and the GOP brand lags significantly behind the Democratic brand among women voters.”

    At the same time, there are thousands of women attending the Republican National Convention, and not all of them are Republicans.

    Jane C. Edmonds, a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, is a Democrat who came to the RNC to offer her support for Mitt Romney’s candidacy. She served as secretary of workforce development for Gov. Romney in Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and says that experience convinced her that he’d be a good president:

    “I want to be able to feel that the next president of the United States will be in a position to move us from the place that we’re at right now to a better future.”
