LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Local Democrats launched a "Women for Obama" effort in La Crosse Wednesday.
La Crosse County Democratic Party Chair Vicki Burke, County Board Chair Tara Johnson and State Representative Jill Billings (D, 95th Assembly) all spoke.
They criticized the Romney/Ryan ticket's approach to women's healthcare, as well as the Republican stance on education.
Billings also said she expects women voters to favor the President's economic policies over Romney's.
"President Obama's policies help the middle class," Billings said. "We need a strong middle class in our country to do well and we need to support small businesses and entrepreneurs with great ideas."
"Those businesses might take off and become the next Apple computers," Billings said.
But Sue Lynch, a Wisconsin delegate at the 2012 GOP Convention, said women across the country are ready for a change in leadership.
"The President had this idea of hope and change that he talked about and ran on four years ago, saying he's going to bring stability to the economy and create jobs," Lynch said. "He hasn't done any of that."
