Campaign Says Romney Still Supports Embattled Indiana Senate Candidate

RENO, Nev. (October 24, 2012)--Republican Mitt Romney's campaign says Romney still supports GOP Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after Mourdock said "God intended" pregnancies that result from rape, and the campaign has not asked Mourdock to take down a TV ad featuring Romney.

Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said Wednesday that Romney disagrees with Mourdock's opposition to abortion in cases of rape and incest, but she says Romney still supports Mourdock's bid.

Mourdock made the comment during a debate Tuesday night with his opponent, Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly.

Romney recorded a TV ad supporting Mourdock's bid that began airing in Indiana this week.

A Romney official said the campaign has not asked Mourdock to stop airing the ad.

Democrats have called on Romney to disavow support for Mourdock and pull down the TV ad.
