'A woman who. ...': Romney's stories court females


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mitt Romney's courtship of female voters in his typical campaign speech sounds a bit like a movie's casting call.

There is Woman Whose Husband Took an Upholstery Class. And Woman Who Is Going Back to College. Don't forget Woman Who Owns Duplexes or Woman Whose Husband Draws Pictures.

These women who have met with Romney during the campaign -- and their stories -- are helping him connect with female voters who make up 52 percent of the electorate. While polling says a majority of women favor President Barack Obama, Romney is working to win them over with stories that hit close to home.

But he won't name the women.
