Mourdock blames 'liberal media' for election loss

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock is accusing the media of sinking his run for the Senate as he looks to pay down campaign debt.

Mourdock campaign finance director Ashlee Walls wrote in an email to supporters Tuesday saying the Republican Senate candidate was “caught in the liberal media cross hairs.” She’s asking for donations to cover remaining bills.

Mourdock lost to Democrat Joe Donnelly last month in the race for Sen. Richard Lugar’s seat. Mourdock’s comments in an October debate that rape resulting from pregnancy is “something God intended” dominated coverage during the final weeks of the race. Mourdock refused to apologize for the remark, and Democrats spent heavily for ads repeating it for voters.

Donnelly’s surprise victory helped Democrats build a 55-45 seat edge in the incoming Senate

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
