Hutchison: GOP Does Not Have Women Problem

Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said the Republican Party does not have a problem with women, despite Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments and recent polling that suggests otherwise.

“When we show the differences between what President Obama has done … I think that the women are going to say, ‘We need a change and we need a better economy, and it is not going to be four more years of what we've seen,’” she said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Hutchison also said that women who are in favor of abortion rights still have a place in the GOP.

 

“Mothers and daughters can disagree on abortion, and we shouldn't put a party around an issue that is so personal and religious-based,” she said. “If you want to be a republican, we welcome you, and I think that we do. … I think that a lot of the people think that the party platform is something that is rigid. It is not really.”

With their positions on social issues and having raised five boys, Hutchison said the Romneys are a good example for the rest of the country.

“Ann and Mitt Romney are exactly the kind of first family we need,” she said.
