“This fall, I am supporting Richard Mourdock for Senate…With so much at stake, I’ll hope you’ll join me in supporting Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate.”
– Mitt Romney, October 21
Romney has said he still supports Mourdock and will not pull his endorsement ad. Romney described himself as “severely conservative” and Richard Mourdock is the only candidate in this election for whom Romney has released a TV ad. When Romney says he will radically roll back women’s access to healthcare services, women should absolutely take him at his work that he is severely conservative.
