ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Both presidential candidates have their female fans.
Supporters of Republican Mitt Romney kicked off their "Women for Mitt" Coalition in Jacksonville on Wednesday. It's also the day President Barack Obama launched a new video featuring actress Elizabeth Banks, speaking out about women's health.
"Women are key to delivering Florida to the president because we care about health care. We care about our families," says Theresa Callahan, a supporter of Mr. Obama. "We care about children. We also care about contraception."
On Wednesday night, Callahan joined other Obama supporters to open a campaign office for the president in St. Augustine.
In Jacksonville, Romney's supporters also spoke about the importance of the female vote.
"Women are going to be major components that are going to help win the election because it's women -- single moms, unemployed -- the women who are just trying to feed their families -- that are seeing the effects of today's economy and they want to see a change," says Chelsi Henry, Romney's supporter.
Romney will make a campaign stop at Flagler College on Monday. The president is focusing on Western battleground states.
