"I can barely afford life as it is now," she says.
So what would each party say to Hannum, and others like her?
Romney's campaign responded to that question by highlighting the former Massachusetts governor's success in big business as well as his plan to rein in government spending, cut bureaucracy and restore economic growth.
"I'm reading about a man who's accomplished a lot," she said. But she noted that his statement did not mention women, health care or birth control. "If you're trying to win me, put something in there that has to do with me."
GOP challenger Rick Santorum's appeal to Hannum was more specific. His campaign invoked her name and made note of her occupation. But Hannum said: "He won't get my vote," partly because he opposes gay marriage.
Obama's campaign did not respond to Hannum.
Still, after listening to both Republicans, she suggested their efforts may end up being moot.
"Because of how I feel about some of the social issues, at this point, I would definitely vote Democratic over the Republicans," says Hannum, though she left open the possibility that she could be swayed.
The GOP has eight months to try.
