NH Senator Ayotte cancels event with Indiana's Mourdock

AP / October 24, 2012

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte has cancelled her plan to campaign with Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who said that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, ‘‘that’s something God intended.’’

Mourdock said on Wednesday said he abhors rape and meant only that God creates life.

But Ayotte’s spokesman, Jeff Grappone, said that the senator disagrees with Mourdock’s comments, which do not represent her views. Ayotte was scheduled to campaign with Mourdock on Wednesday, but canceled her trip and is in New Hampshire instead.

Mourdock’s comment, made at a debate Tuesday night, has pushed the issues of rape and abortion to the forefront. The campaign of Republican Mitt Romney, who appears in a television ad for Mourdock, said the presidential nominee disagrees with Mourdock.

3. She's a serious tea partier

Nothing more, nothing less.

She may disavow Mourduck's remarks, but make no mistake that she's an extremist.

2. Why bother? Personhood is a GOP plank. Mourdock IS the Republican Party

Who's fooling who?
