Some Republican voters in this key swing state have grown weary of the talk of contraception and religion in the GOP primary campaign.
“I think all politicians need to stick to the economy and get away from social issues,” said Marty Folger, 52, a banker from Port Clinton, Ohio.
Folger said she came to Saturday’s Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner at Bowling Green State University to help her decide between former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum.
“I’ve always been more about the economy and when it comes to the social issues I don’t really let them play into my decisions,” said Folger, who is nevertheless leaning toward Santorum.
“I want to be able to lend money to people so they can create jobs and get our economy going again,” she said.
