Women meet up weekly at Eau Claire County Republican Headquarters

By  | 

Eau Claire, Wis. (WEAU) -- Some women in the area met up Monday night to support the Romney/Ryan ticket.

It is called the "Wisconsin Mother's Drive the Economy Phone Bank."

They were making phone calls from the Eau Claire County Republican Headquarters.

They say in Eau Claire every Monday night is women's night, meaning they have female callers and emphasize issues important to women.

One volunteer told us why she believes Romney is the right choice for her family.

"It appeals to me that he is going to free up energy development to lower the price of gas that is really hurting not just our gas bill every month, but our grocery bill every month," said Emily Power.

Republicans have been making a strong pro-mother, pro-women push on the campaign trail, trying to reject the democratic notion that Republicans are waging a war on women.
