Scott Brown: Mourdock’s Comment ‘Not What I Believe’

Republican Sen. Scott Brown, who is in a tough race in Massachusetts, said Wednesday that he disagrees with the controversial comment by Richard Mourdock, the GOP nominee for Senate in Indiana.

Mourdock said at a debate the previous 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."

“It’s not what I believe,” Brown told reporters at a campaign event, according to the Republican, a newspaper based in Springfield. “I’m a pro-choice Republican and that’s not what I believe. I disagree with what he said.”

When asked whether he wants Mourdock to be elected to the U.S. Senate, Brown said: “It’s up to the people of Indiana, certainly.”
