Democratic accusations that Republicans are engaged in a “War on Women” are “offensive” and “not gonna work,” Ann Romney said in a Fox News interview that aired Tuesday.

“It’s ridiculous,” Romney said. “Honestly. I mean, I don’t think they’re getting very far with that by the way. It’s not gonna work. I think women are a lot smarter than that. And that’s kind of offensive to me to tell you the truth.”

Romney’s comment came after she was asked about previous remarks by Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who said Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) had “given women the back of his hand.”

In addition to refuting the potential of the “War on Women” campaign, Romney also defended Walker in the interview with Fox’s Neil Cavuto.

“Scott Walker’s a good guy. He’s got a wonderful wife and he, you know, values women. And, you know, that just doesn’t fly.”
