ESSENCE News Editor Wendy L. Wilson catches up with a few Republican sisters to find out why they're rooting for Romney to beat President Obama this November.

“I’m a conservative because of how my parents raised me. People have been drawn in by the Obama persona. They don’t look at his policies or what he’s done. He’s just this celebrity they are drawn to. People voted for him because they got caught up in history, and that’s why this country has gone through what it has in the past three years. I was not comfortable with his past or his experience. I’m not saying the Republican Party is perfect, but it is the party that most aligns with my beliefs. I look at what today’s Democratic Party leaders are pushing and I don’t think that a lot of the Democrats fully understand what their leaders push and believe. If you believe in the Constitution you’re called an extremist, but those who are on the far left are never called extreme.”
