Mourdock and Heller: Closer Than You Think

Thus much for the “moderate persona.”

“News of disgraced Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s view that pregnancy resulting from rape is a “gift from God” spread across the country yesterday, but what Nevadans should know is that their own Republican Senate candidate Dean Heller stands shoulder to shoulder with Richard Mourdock.  Heller even started joint fundraising accounts with Mourdock and has received $107,000 from their joint fundraising efforts. ” (DSCC)

FEC reports show the following:

“Heller & Mourdock Were Both Members Of Two Joint Fundraising Committees. The campaigns of Dean Heller and Richard Mourdock were both members of two joint fundraising committees, the Founders’ Committee and the 2012 Senators Classic Committee. Founders’ Committee Transferred More Than $60,000 To Mourdock’s Senate Campaign & More Than $70,000 To Heller’s Campaign.

According to FEC records, the Founders’ Committee transferred $60,903.47 to Hoosiers For Richard Mourdock and a total of $70,293 to Dean Heller’s Senate campaign.  2012 Senators Classic Committee Transferred Nearly $40,000 To Mourdock’s Senate Campaign & More Than $37,000 To Heller’s Campaign.  According to FEC records, the 2012 Senators Classic Committee transferred $38,561 to Hoosiers For Richard Mourdock and a total of $37,259.16 to Dean Heller’s Senate campaign. “

This would make sense given than Senator Heller voted for the Blunt Amendment, voted twice against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and voted twice against the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Again, Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-NV1) is a far better choice for Nevada women.  Voter information located here.
