Mourdock adds Daniels to Romney ad

Mourdock

INDIANAPOLIS – Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock has added Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels to the effort to get past his comment that pregnancy resulting from rape is something “that God intended.”

The Mourdock campaign inserted a picture of the embattled candidate with Daniels into its ad featuring GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The new spot began airing Friday.

Daniels ducked a question about Mourdock’s comments on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” on Thursday night, telling Stephen Colbert he’s a “non-combatant” in the race.

Daniels has declined to campaign for candidates since being picked as Purdue University’s next president, but still occasionally gives political analysis.

Mourdock has said he was misunderstood and never meant that God intends rape. His campaign has called reaction from Democrats “sleazy.”
