Today I noticed the results of a recent survey of Republican women who affirm that women are most concerned about economic and fiscal issues during this presidential election year.

Obama's economic policies have failed our entire nation, but women have been disproportionately affected, The NFRW survey affirms that women believe the economy, unemployment, federal spending and personal finances are our biggest problems, both nationally and locally.

Many respondents are feeling the economic strains personally. When asked whether they are struggling to make ends meet, nearly 40% indicated that they are either struggling or somewhat struggling.

More than 8,500 Republican women from all 50 states and many U.S. territories participated in the online survey.

The NFRW had two requirements for participants: they had to be female, and they had to describe themselves as Republicans. The survey covered a range of topics on domestic and foreign policy, societal concerns, perceptions about women, elections, politics, personal beliefs, and demographics. Economic and fiscal issues noticeably dominated.

It's clear that we need new leadership in Washington to turn our country around. The NFRW will be speaking out between now and Election Day, educating women about Obama's failed economic record and offering Mitt Romney as the candidate with the expertise and the solutions to put Americans back to work."

 

Shenanigans are happening at the Republican National Convention.

A proposed rule change would allow the Presidential nominee to “disavow” duly elected delegates and force the states to hold new elections to replace any delegate or alternate deemed unacceptable by the Nominee.

This would not only undermine the will of the electorate and give the presumptive nominee enormous power to block delegates with whom he or she disagrees, it would impose a financial burden on the state to hold new elections to replace the disavowed delegates. States would have to write rules to govern this newly imposed burden.

This would take power away from the state parties and put the Nominee in charge of determining your states' delegates.  Some are calling this the largest power grab in Republican Party history.

There is a Minority Report being circulated that would stop this change.  We need you to contact your state’s delegates serving on the Rules Committee.
