SEATTLE – President Barack Obama will aim his economic message at women voters as he campaigns on the West Coast for two female candidates crucial to Democrats’ chances of keeping their fragile majority in the Senate.

Polls have shown an erosion in the slight leads held by the two Democratic candidates to razor-thin margins, with less than two weeks left before the Nov. 2 congressional elections.
Obama is seeking to rev up core Democratic voters and targeting women, who vote Democratic in higher percentages than male voters, is part of that strategy.
