Mourdock Now Tied in Indiana Senate Race

Poll comes from Mourdock's campaign, though

|

Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock (R) is out with a new poll showing him tied with Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) following his recent controversial comments over rape and pregnancy.

Mourdock and Donnelly are deadlocked at 44 percent apiece, according to a poll sent by Mourdock's chief of staff to supporters. The poll was conducted after Mourdock said Tuesday that pregnancy caused by rape is something "God intended to happen," a comment that set off a national media firestorm and led some Republicans to publicly distance themselves from his sentiment.
