Republican Senate nominee Richard Mourdock's campaign continued on in Indiana, with the candidates attending a major GOP fundraising event Wednesday night. Mourdock said at a debate Tuesday night that he opposed allowing abortion in cases of rape, saying that in those cases where a pregnancy occurred, "it is something that God intended to happen."
The Associated Press reports:
"It's another day on the campaign trail. You have up days, you have down days, but I'm really, really gratified with everything that's been said to me here tonight," Mourdock told the Associated Press as he left the reception and walked into the dinner.
Mourdock shared the stage at the fundraiser with gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence, and Republican donors said his comments likely would fire up Indiana's base of anti-abortion voters. Staff for the Hamilton County Republican Party, which hosted the Wednesday fundraiser, barred press from the dinner.
