Kicking off his Virginia campaign, Republican Mitt Romney says he'll do "the opposite" of what Democratic President Barack Obama has done to help the economy.

Romney campaigned Wednesday in the Washington suburbs of Northern Virginia, a region of a key swing state that will be critical for Romney. Obama won Virginia in 2008 after back-to-back Republican victories by George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004.

Speaking at a warehouse in Chantilly, Va., Romney told women business owners he's running to "help your enterprises."

Romney said his vision for America that includes "putting aside ethnicity, race, gender." His wife, Ann, who introduced him, emphasized female voters, saying "women do make the world go round."

Romney also planned private meetings Wednesday at the Republican National Committee and a fundraiser in Arlington, Va.
