Oh bull! He made a moronic comment that for a politician in his position, in this day and age is the kiss of death. Had you or I made the same comment we could have been politely corrected but this guy isn't just Joe Schmuck, like me. He's running for the US Senate...as a Republican. If he hasn't learnd by now that there's no 'take backs' for stupid comments by Republicans then he's too dumb to sit in the Senate. Who does he think he is? Joe Biden?
It’s a mere excuse that others weather. The pro-abortion wing of the Republican party wants him out because he’s too pro-life.
