Ann Romney rallies women in Findlay

Ann Romney holds the "Women for Mitt" rally in Findlay.

UPDATE: Ann Romney was received by a packed auditorium at the University of Findlay Wednasday afternoon.

The mostly female audience listened to Mrs. Romney as she tries to shorten the gap that critics say is between Mitt Romney and the female vote.

Ann Romney said, "And women, if you want a better future, if you want a better job, if you want a better hope for you, you better vote for Mitt.," which was followed by cheers.

She also addressed critics comments on the disconnect between the Romney's and the American people.

"When people say that we've lived a charmed life and that we don't relate to people who are having trouble, I want to remind you that I've been in a very dark place. And I know what it's like to have no hope. So believe me when I tell you these words... we are there for you, and we know what it feels like," she says as she appears to become a little emotional.

She got upset when referring to her husband being demonized in the media and by critics. Those in attendance think the facts are often fabrications.

"I think that the Republican Party has a tent that's big enough for women, no matter what you can do. And I think a lot of that has been manufactured for sound bites by the media," says atendee Ellen Hernandez.

Whether there is a gap or not, nobody can deny that the female vote will be vital to winning the election in November.


While First Lady Michelle Obama made her case for her husband's relection Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention, the woman vying to replace her in the White House will be in Findlay.
