Abortion-rights foe to endorse Mourdock

A statewide group opposed to abortion rights will endorse Richard Mourdock in his bid to unseat Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind.

Mourdock's campaign said Wednesday that Mike Fichter, chairman of the Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee, will endorse Mourdock on Thursday at the Fort Wayne offices of Allen County Right to Life.

Mourdock, the second-term state treasurer, is challenging Lugar in the May 8 Republican primary election.
