NBC’s Michael O’Brien reported Tuesday on the Repub­li­cans’ need to cap­ture the sup­port of women from Democ­rats, noting:

Obama led Romney 51 per­cent to 41 per­cent among women in the August NBC News/​Wall Street Journal poll, and the GOP brand lags sig­nif­i­cantly behind the Demo­c­ratic brand among women voters.”

At the same time, there are thou­sands of women attending the Repub­lican National Con­ven­tion, and not all of them are Republicans.

Jane C. Edmonds, a pro­fessor at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity in Boston, is a Demo­crat who came to the RNC to offer her sup­port for Mitt Romney’s can­di­dacy. She served as sec­re­tary of work­force devel­op­ment for Gov. Romney in Mass­a­chu­setts from 2003 to 2007 and says that expe­ri­ence con­vinced her that he’d be a good president:
