A new poll out this morning in the Indiana Senate race appears to show controversial comments made by an Indiana Senate Candidate are hurting his campaign.
Both told us Tuesday they're confident they'll come out on top.
Democrats continue their attack on Mourdock after the tea party-backed candidate proclaimed a pregnancy resulting from rape is "something God intended" -- with a new television ad paid for by a Union Political Action Committee.
“You’re saying people are talking about it. They're not talking to me about it – I came in this room and several other rooms this morning and the issue hasn't come up other than from the press,” Mourdock told WSBT.
WSBT also asked Donnelly if he feels his supporters “twisted” Mourdock’s words from that debate, as his opponent has said.
“Mr. Mourdock’s comments were hurtful to women, to rape survivors and to families. I thought after further reflection he might take those words back, but he has not,” Donnelly said.
To put these new numbers in perspective, a Howey poll in September showed Donnelly leading Mourdock by just 2 points.
As for the Indiana Governor's race, a Howey poll shows Republican Mike Pence leading Democrat John Gregg 47 to 40 percent.
