The Obama campaign appears to have paralleled that assertion, unveiling a new ad on Friday that casts Romney as "Extreme On Women's Issues."
The Romney camp's noteworthy answer to a question from The Huffington Post's Sam Stein about the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act also makes its way into the ad.
"Does Governor Romney support the Lilly Ledbetter Act?" Stein asked Romney's camp. That request was followed by five seconds of silence, before a male voice responded with "Sam, we'll get back to you on that."
Romney's campaign later confirmed Romney would not repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which provides women with more legal channels through which to pursue equal pay for equal work.
UPDATE (4:10 p.m. ET) -- In an email to The Huffington Post, Romney Campaign Spokesperson Andrea Saul responded to the ad. “President Obama’s policies have been particularly devastating to women," Saul wrote. "After more than three years of the President’s failed economic policies and nearly a million more unemployed women workers, women voters – like all Americans – realize we can’t afford four more years of President Obama.”
