Mourdock Rips Donnelly Over DSCC Ad
Indiana Republican Senate nominee Richard Mourdock is blasting Democratic candidate Joe Donnelly for a blistering ad released by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Thursday afternoon.
The spot goes after Mourdock's controversial comments about rape pregnancies, and demands he apologize for the remarks. A day after, Mourdock said his words were inarticulate and said he was sorry if people misinterpreted them.
In response, the Mourdock campaign is asking voters to respond to Donnelly's "twisted tactics" on Election Day.
"Hoosiers are calling Joe Donnelly’s attacks sleazy, and it’s no wonder why. Now Donnelly and his liberal Washington allies are attacking Richard Mourdock’s faith and beliefs," Mourdock campaign spokesman Brose McVey says in a news release. "This ad also violates an agreement Joe Donnelly signed, and speaks to his character.
