Indiana’s Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock paid a visit to Warsaw this afternoon to meet with supporters. The spirited crowd of about 50 people packed into the Republican headquarters to listen to a confident Mourdock speak.
“I’m absolutely convinced that unless we have Republicans running the Senate, the House and the White House, we’re going to see more of a starving economy and more uncertainty coming from the federal government,” said Mourdock, adding, “so (much so) that all the businesses in America, large businesses and small businesses alike, are going to have more uncertainty of what the future will be.”
Mourdock has drawn criticism nationally over his remarks regarding rape just last week. Despite the negative image, Mourdock and his supporters remain confident.
“We had a rough time a week ago,” said Mourdock. “Politics has a series of ups and downs … but you know, we bounce back. We are coming back and we’re talking about getting our economy going.”
Wednesday’s stop was part of a north to east Indiana rally for support, with stops from Fort Wayne to Elkhart, and many points in between.
Mourdock left his supporters in Warsaw with one final message: “Please … think when you vote. When you talk to others about the vote coming up six days from now, remind them that this is about something much bigger than Richard Mourdock versus Joe Donnelly. It’s much bigger than Republican versus Democrat for the race for United States Senate. This race is going to determine the direction of the United States of America.”
