SC Gov. Nikki Haley tells Republicans to stay focused on Obama's record

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, (R), has called Ann Romney, Mitt Romney’s wife a “Golden Bullet” for the front-running presidential hopeful in getting more positive response from the women voters, who by large, still seem to be tilted toward Obama’s side.

Speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Haley offered some spontaneous advice to the former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney saying that its about time he started relating to the women voters.

“If Gov. Romney has not related to women, he needs to get out there and talk about the issues they care about," Haley said. "They care about jobs and the economy, and raising their families and all of those things. But they are obviously not relating to him as much as we want them to. That means he has to work harder, he needs to continue to do that, and he needs to bring that one golden bullet he's got, which is Ann Romney."

Nikki Haley said that Ann Romney’s life and her personality might help Romney in winning the 2012 presidential bid against President Barack Obama. "When they see how strong she is, the fact that she is an M.S. survivor, a cancer survivor, a great mom, a great wife, strong supporter, and hear her talk about him, I think he'll do a lot better," Haley said as she responded to the question about strengthening support Obama is gaining among women voters.

Haley said the Romney needs to fight for this, and put more time and effort into talking with women voters, Latinos and all those who still do not associate themselves with him. "I think they need the ability to ask him those questions, and I think he needs to look them in the eye and give them the answers," Haley said. "Because that's what this is about. You don't go talk to people who you already have support. You talk to the people that still have questions.

Haley recently endorsed Romney, saying that he was the natural choice between all the candidates, since she wanted to support some one who could create jobs and help struggling businesses, rather than be a part of the ongoing chaos in Washington. Haley also said that she would say “no" if she were offered to be the vice-presidential running mate to Mitt Romney in the 2012 general elections.
