Mourdock Still Has Support of National Republican Senatorial Committee

The chairman of the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm is standing by Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after he said pregnancies resulting from rape are “something that God intended to happen.”

“Richard and I, along with millions of Americans — including even Joe Donnelly — believe that life is a gift from God,” Texas Sen. John Cornyn said in a statement Wednesday. “To try and construe his words as anything other than a restatement of that belief is irresponsible and ridiculous. In fact, rather than condemning him for his position, as some in his party have when it’s come to Republicans, I commend Congressman Donnelly for his support of life.”
