Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison laid out her support for Mitt Romney today, and threw out the argument that the Republican party is waging a "war on women. in an op-ed in the Houston Chronicle.


"All Americans are suffering. Unemployment is too high, economic growth is too low, and the Obama administration seems incapable of doing anything about it. We all need a change for the better, and those politicians who prefer to divide us rather than seek solutions deserve our scorn.

I support Gov. Mitt Romney for president because he has a well-thought-out plan to get our economy back on track. He recognizes that it is not government but the American people who have made our country great. Men and women pursuing their hopes, seeking the fulfillment of the American dream. The success of our efforts to grow the economy will depend entirely on whether we make it easier or harder for them to accomplish that goal," Hutchison writes.

Hutchison writes that when she became the first woman to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, "it was with the help of a lot of women – and a large number of men, too."

Hutchison did not endorse Gov. Rick Perry while he was running for the Republican nomination. She had said on MSNBC in February, she thought Romney has the experience she hopes a president would have.
