ATLANTA (AP) — Democrats and Republicans agree that women could be the deciding factor in which party controls the Senate for the final two years of Barack Obama's presidency.

In several key races, Democrats want to repeat the advantage they usually have among female voters in presidential election years. They want to use issues like minimum wage, pay equity and insurance coverage for contraception to their advantage.

Republicans argue that it won't work in a midterm election year dominated by older, whiter voters and conservative independents. They believe that those groups are largely unhappy with Obama and the direction of the country and that voter discontent will trump whatever Democrats emphasize ahead of the November elections.
