If you missed the uproar tonight over tottering GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock in Indiana--Todd Akin Lite--see the comments in video below. Story here. How this hurts GOP chances of taking Senate.
UPDATE #2 Dems now hitting this issue hard. Spokesman for Obama says he finds Mourdock view "demeaning to women." Now the Dems are calling on Romney to take down his pro-Mourdckk ad (view it below). NYT: GOPers "struggle to contain damage."
UPDATE #1 AP with full reaction story this morning. Romney distancing himself from candidate and hits his comment. But DNC just out with ad highlighting this unfortunate fact for Romney: Just this past Monday he cut the only ad he has done so far for any candidate--and it backed Mourdock (see it below). "Romney aides would not say whether the ad would be pulled and if the
Republican presidential nominee would continue to support Mourdock's
Senate bid. Other Republicans did not immediately weigh in.
Indiana Republican Party spokesman Pete Seat referred comment to the
Mourdock campaign. A spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial
Committee did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday
"National Democrats quickly picked up on Mourdock's statement and used it as an opportunity to paint him as an extreme candidate."
