AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): What would you say the biggest problem facing the Republican Party is? Is it women? I mean, you're a woman, you're a mother, you still support the president. What's your message to those women that are on the fence?

RONNA ROMNEY MCDANIEL (REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRWOMAN): Well, the Democrats have really tried to fearmonger on health care and tried to tell people that Republicans are going to take pre-existing conditions. It is flat out false. The president has been on the stump refuting that. We have candidates sharing stories of their family members, of their kids, of their mothers who have pre-existing conditions. Of course we would never take away that right. So that's one of the things that the Democrats are trying to do, they try and scare their voters.
