The Republican nominee told supporters in Virginia on Wednesday that women have suffered through high unemployment and high poverty rates during Obama’s term. Romney says he has a better plan to help them.

Romney’s push to broaden his appeal came a day after he faced off against Obama in the second presidential debate.

Both candidates are courting women voters.

During the debate, Romney highlighted the number of women who served in his administration when he was governor of Massachusetts.

Meanwhile, campaigning in Iowa on Wednesday, Obama criticized Romney for not backing a law allowing women to sue for equal pay.

Obama: Romney’s economic plan a ‘sketchy deal’

Obama is ridiculing  Romney’s five-point plan for the economy as a “sketchy deal” that boils down to helping the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

Obama told a political rally at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, that Romney won’t reveal details about how to pay for his proposed 20 percent cut in tax rates.

The president says that when politicians say they will wait to explain plans until after the election, “they don’t have a pleasant surprise in store for you.”

Playing off a Romney response during Tuesday’s presidential debate, Obama says that when it comes to recruiting new math and science teachers “we don’t have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women.”
