Obama targets women voters as election day nears

SEATTLE (AP) - President Barack Obama is trumpeting his efforts to help women in the workforce as he looks to rally key Democratic constituencies ahead of the Nov. 2 election.

As the economy has changed, Obama says women have made "enormous strides" and now constitute more than half of the workforce. Obama says that means women's issues are now middle class family issues.

Obama said Thursday in Seattle that female business owners have particularly benefited from the administration's efforts to free up lending for small businesses. Obama is in the midst of his longest campaign swing as president, a four-day trip through Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada and Minnesota.
