GREENFIELD, Ind. — GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said he can’t “unring the bell” on comments he made last week about rape, and he’s joining a national Republican effort to shift discussion away from his remarks.
Mourdock also said he was surprised by the reaction to his remarks after last week’s Senate debate and didn’t realize he had said anything controversial. Mourdock has clarified what he meant when he said any pregnancy resulting from rape would be God’s intent, but hasn’t apologized.
Mourdock never mentioned the comments during a campaign stop with supporters Monday.
