HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is intensifying his rebuttal of claims that he and fellow Republicans are insufficiently supportive of women, or even hostile to them.
For the second straight day the presumptive GOP nominee campaigned Wednesday at a female-owned work site and denounced Democrats for saying his party is waging "a war on women."
Romney said the real war on women is being waged by what he called President Barack Obama's failed economic policies.
The former Massachusetts governor said Obama's economic policies have caused disproportionately high job losses for women.
Independent groups say the claim distorts the larger employment picture by ignoring key facts.
