Mitt Romney reached out to women voters during a rally in the key swing state of Ohio Saturday.
During an outdoor rally near Columbus, the presumptive GOP nominee promised to promote women-led businesses if he's elected president.
Romney spoke to about 5,000 supporters and was joined by running mate Paul Ryan.
"Just a word to the women entrepreneurs out there: if we become, if we become president and vice president, we want to speak to you, we want to help you," Romney said. "Women in this country are more likely to start businesses than men. Women need our help."
Saturday's rally is expected to be Romney's last public appearance before the Republican National Convention opens Monday in Tampa, Florida.
Some high-profile women are expected to attend the GOP convention, including former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
Romney's wife Ann will also deliver a speech.
While Romney appealed to a wider base, President Barack Obama said his challenger is taking extreme positions and will implement them if he's elected.
In an interview with the Associated Press, the president said Romney makes factually wrong arguments that could haunt him during debates.
Obama also said he would be willing to reach across the aisle on many issues in his second term.
In the meantime, Vice President Joe Biden has been meeting with voters.
He attended an event Friday night on Long Island.
An Obama campaign official said Biden is putting off Monday's planned trip to Tampa so local law enforcement and emergency responders can focus on Tropical Storm Isaac.
Biden is planning a two-day swing through Orlando and St. Augustine during the Republican National Convention to counter the GOP's efforts.
