Obama Woos Women Voters


From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

(CHICAGO) Barack Obama marks the final week of his economy tour in Albuquerque today, where he will address women's issues. He will sit down with a small group of female employees at the Flying Star Café and Bakery, a locally owned restaurant founded by husband and wife duo, Jean and Mark Bernstein.

In recent weeks, the Obama campaign has made an extra effort to woo women voters, particularly those who sided with Hillary Clinton during the primaries. Michelle Obama addressed the National Partnership for Women and Families in Washington DC on Friday, where she talked about her experiences as a working mother.

"Days together at home have been harder to come by as the campaign heats up," Michelle Obama told the magazine.
