Announcer: YOU ARE WATCHING
WISH-TV.
NOW 24 HOUR NEWS 8 AT 6:00
CONTINUES.
12 DAYS AND COUNTING UNTIL
ELECTION DAY.
RIGHT NOW AT 6:00 WE HAVE NEW
COMMENTS FROM RICHARD MOURDOCK
AND JOE DONNELLY.
THE PRESIDENT WEIGHED IN ON THE
COMMENTS REGARDING RAPE AND
ABORTION.
JIM SHELLA IS HERE WITH ALL
OF THE DEVELOPMENTS.
JIM?
Reporter: RICHARD MOURDOCK
STARTED HIS DAY WITH A FUND
RAISER HOSTED BY JIM DeMINT.
HE IS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS
CAMPAIGN AS THE FIRE STORM THAT
WAS SPARKED TUESDAY NIGHT
SUBSIDES.
HE WAS THE LUNCHTIME SPEAKER AT
THE CRAWFORDSVILLE KIWANIS CLUB.
AND WHY JOHN McCAIN QUESTIONED
MOURDOCK SUGGESTING HIS CAMPAIGN
HANGS IN THE BALANCE.
IF HE APOLOGIZES, THEN
OBVIOUSLY I WOULD BE THE
FIRST --
Reporter: McCAIN ISSUED A
STATEMENT TODAY RENEWING THE
SUPPORT.
TODAY IT WAS THE PRESIDENT WHO
COMMENTED.
THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T WANT A
BUNCH OF POLITICIANS, MOSTLY
MALE MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT
WOMEN'S HEALTHCARE DECISIONS.
I'M SURPRISED THAT THE
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
IS TALKING ABOUT WHAT THE SENATE
RACE IS HAPPENING IN INDIANA.
Reporter: JOE DONNELLY
CONTINUED HIS NORMAL CAMPAIGN
TOO, TAKING PART IN A COOKING
SEGMENT ON WISH-TV'S "INDY
STYLE."
I THINK IT'S HOW THE WHOLE
CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN ON HIS SIDE.
HE HAS BEEN SO EXTREME ON SOCIAL
SECURITY, MEDICARE, THE ACTIONS
HE TOOK AT CHRYSLER.
AND IT'S A PATTERN.
Reporter: AND AS STEPHENCO
BAIR POINTED OUT, IT'S NOT WHAT
REPUBLICANS WANT TO RUN ON.
THE DEMOCRATS ARE NOW SPENDING
OVER A MILLION DOLLARS THAT
INCLUDE HIS CONTROVERSIAL
COMMENTS.
AS YOU SAY THE FIRE STORM IS
OVER, BUT YOU DID SPOT A CHANGE
IN ONE OF MOURDOCK'S ADS.
HE HAS AN AD THAT HAS MITT
ROMNEY ENDORSING HIM ON CAMERA.
IT NOW INCLUDES A PICTURE OF
MITCH DANIELS AT ONE POINT, AND
HE IS TALKING THROUGH THE LEAVES
WITH HIS WIFE AT THE END, WHICH
IS A SUBTLE OUTREACH TO WOMEN,
AND TRYING TO LEAN ON MITCH
DANIELS TO A GREATER DEGREE.
CLEARLY THAT'S ALL YOU NEED TO
KNOW ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THE
MOURDOCK CAMP THINKS HE HAS BEEN
HURT.
AND THEY ARE CALLING IN
MITCH.
