Tonight on CNN, Robert Ehrlich, Mitt Romney’s Maryland campaign chair, suggested that voters — particularly women — would not be exposed to Romney’s “real views” until the general election. Ehrlich said that once women “see” Romney’s “real views,” the gender gap between him and President Obama would dissipate.

Watch it:

Ehrlich, the former Republican Governor of Maryland, is pro-choice.

Last month, a top Romney aide said that Romney didn’t have to worry about lurching to the right during the primary because in the general election he could start over fresh “almost like an Etch A Sketch.”

Yesterday, Romney’s wife Ann said, “I guess we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out.”
