South Dakota women head to Romney event in Iowa

Posted: Updated:

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney is in Orange City, Iowa and hundreds headed there to hear him speak. Some Romney supporters made the trip from Sioux Falls.

It took longer for the women to drive to Orange City than Romney talked to the hundreds of people at Northwestern College. But for the women tell us they wouldn't have missed Romney's 20 minute speech.

The group of ladies made the 70 mile trip from Sioux Falls to Orange City, Iowa.

"I came because of women for Romney. We brought a lot of folks with us today because this is an exciting day for women," Leslee Unruh said.

Exciting because they want to hear more from the republican presidential candidate.

"I'm coming to see the future President of the United States and hear him talk about the economy which is important to women of this country," Thorson said.

While Romney didn't talk specifically about women's issues during his speech at Northwestern College, he did talk about the economy, helping small businesses and how to create jobs.

"Taking advantage of our energy resources that will put millions of Americans back to work," Romney said.

Romney thanked Iowans for knowing what they want in a president.

"Thank you to Orange City for doing such a great job in electing people who believe in conservative principles, who love their constitution and will stand for the principles America was based upon," Romney said.

And what Romney talked about Friday, the group will be bringing it back to South Dakota.

"The enthusiasm. This is a great crowd and we need this country riled up and riled up behind a great candidate," Thorson said.

"This is what America is about and what we're supposed to be doing and I know I put out the word to do something great I want people to care and I care about America and that's why I came today," Unruh said.
