Richard Mourdock campaign blames media for Republican’s loss
Richard Mourdock’s campaign is pointing fingers following last month’s loss in the race for Richard Lugar’s Senate seat.
Mourdock’s camp sent an e-mail Tuesday, saying the quote “liberal media” is to blame for his loss to Democrat Joe Donnelly.
The e-mail was sent out as part of a new fundraising pitch to help Mourdock erase his campaign debt.
In the email says, “In our case, we found our campaign caught in the liberal media cross hairs.
“Never has Indiana seen a more obvious example of media bias by reporters more interested in defeating conservatives than reporting the news.”
Mourdock lost by five percentage points.
