Rep. Jason Chaffetz: GOP has a lot of sucessful women that would make great role models

“Starting Point” guest panelist Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) discusses highlights from the Republican National Convention dealing with immigration and women’s issues.

“Over the course of the last three days, you saw very strong, accomplished women take the stage - center stage. I think the Governor of New Mexico...I thought she was absolutely fabulous. She talked about how she thought she was a Democrat but when she really sat down with somebody and went through what she believed in, she realized ‘I’m actually a Republican.’ And she went on to great success,” says Chaffetz. “I think the strength of Ann Romney's presentation really gave a glimpse into the greater Romney family.”

Chaffetz went on to say he hoped “that as people look at the principles" of the Republican Party, they see "a lot of women that have been very successful" and "great role models for people moving forward."
