Verbatim: GOP must ‘stop the coddling’

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chair, Sen. Patty Murray, released the following statement regarding Richard Mourdock’s comment last night about rape and pregnancy:

“While Mitt Romney is rightly distancing himself from Richard Mourdock today, his ad endorsing Mourdock’s extreme candidacy continues to air in Indiana. If Mitt Romney is serious about repudiating these heinous views on rape, he will take down this ad immediately.

“National Republicans cannot paper over Richard Mourdock’s heinous views on rape. Enough is enough. The Republican Party needs to stop the coddling and take a stand against the horribly offensive and dangerous views of the Tea Party and their extreme candidates.”
