ABOARD THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN PLANE — Aides to Mitt Romney indicated Wednesday that the Republican presidential nominee is sticking by his endorsement of embattled U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.
“Gov. Romney disagrees with Richard Mourdock, and Mr. Mourdock’s comments do not reflect Gov. Romney’s views,” said press secretary Andrea Saul. “We disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him.”
Mourdock is one of the few candidates Romney has personally endorsed this cycle, and the Republican nominee released an ad for the Indiana candidate just days ago, before Mourdock’s controversial comments on rape and abortion.
In a debate Tuesday night, Mourdock said he is opposed to abortion in the case of rape, because “that it is something that God intended to happen.”
