Women's Issues at RNC: SC Governor Weighs In

August 29, 2012

TAMPA, Fla. - Whether it was part of its plan or not, the Republican Party is having to address the issue of abortion at its national convention.

That's partly the result of some controversial remarks made by Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri, putting the issue squarely on the minds of voters - and reporters who encountered South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley at the convention center in Tampa.

Haley says she doesn't believe abortion is a top-of-mind issue for women.

"These debates that you fellows keep talking about and that the Dems keep talking about, it's just not where women are. Women are not one-issue voters."

Haley addressed the convention Tuesday night during prime time. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney arrived Tuesday as well, a day earlier than expected.

When reporters asked Haley about why more married women than single women support the GOP, Haley said it is a "coincidence."

"Women's experiences change over time, the same way men's experiences change over time. That's what you're seeing; it's just a different time in your life."

Haley preceded Anne Romney, who also took the stage Tuesday night. Earlier in the campaign, Haley was thought to be a potential vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket.
