Bachmann: Romney economic record will win over female voters

Monday, May 7, 2012 - 11:11am

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) predicted that Mitt Romney would be able to rally female voters for the November general election, thanks to his strength on economic issues.

"What women want is competence . . . and Mitt Romney is competence in spades," said the former GOP presidential candidate during an appearance on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday.

Bachmann endorsed Romney last week.

The Minnesota lawmaker also rebuffed as a “myth” Democratic claims that Republicans are waging a “war on women.”
