Earlier tonight, Charles told you about Richard Mourdock, the Indiana senatorial candidate who said that if a rapist impregnates a woman, “it’s something God intended.” Here's an ad Romney cut for Mourdock that began airing in Indiana yesterday:

Romney has not done very many of these direct endorsements in regional races, so he clearly felt very strongly about Mourdock as a candidate. How does he feel now?

"Gov. Romney disagrees with Richard Mourdock's comments, and they do not reflect his views," said Romney press secretary Andrea Saul in a statement...Saul did not respond when asked if Romney continues to endorse Mourdock or if he would ask the candidate to stop airing the ad.

First Paul Ryan endorsed Akin and Rivard, now Romney's people refuse to say if he's backing away from his endorsement of Mourdock. I can't recall a more pro-rape presidential ticket.
