Obama and gender politics

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama and the Republican Party already are competing hard for the support of women in the November elections.
    
White House advisers say no group will be more important to Democrats' performance than unmarried women - who are likely to vote Democratic.
    
Obama has been holding events at the White House and around the country promoting women's economic issues and he plans to do more.

The Republican National Committee plans a new initiative to recruit and train women under 40 to help spread the party's message in the final 14 weeks of the campaign.
