FAIRFAX, Va. (WUSA) - The women standing behind the president leave little doubt who President Obama is focusing on with just days until the election. When the president visited George Mason University on Friday, the talk was on wooing the women voters.
But the biggest crowd pleasing moment came when Mr. Obama coined a new political term for his rival: Mitt Romney
"We gotta name this condition he's going through. I think it's called Romnesia," said the president, who accused his opponent of flip flopping on major issues.
Polls show that Romney has narrowed the gap among women voters. Both candidates are courting the highly sought after female demographic of undecided women voters.
Alison Webster from Falls Church said of the president, "He stands for what I believe in equality for women, affordable health care, and education for my son"
Women are not only key in this race but also as Congressman Gerry Connolly puts it, the Commonwealth is front and center.
It is a dead heat in Virginia with some polls showing Mr. Obama with a razor thin lead.
Mitt Romney rallied Republicans in Leesburg.
Some political analysts say there are few paths to victory for Romney without Virginia. So this state is crucial for both candidates.
