Donnelly Compares Mourdock to Stubborn Teenagers in Ad

Who does Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock remind his Democratic opponent Joe Donnelly of? His two children when they were uncompromising teenagers, according to an ad Donnelly began running yesterday in Evansville, Indiana.

“In my experience, there are two groups of people who think they’re right 100 percent of the time: teenagers and my opponent, Richard Mourdock,” Donnelly says in the ad, in which he appears with his wife and children.

Donnelly goes on to assert that he’s ranked as one of the most independent members of Congress “because no political party is always right” and to claim that Mourdock “thinks he’s right 100 percent of the time.”

“My teeenage kids grew out of that attitude, and it’s time Washington does too,” he says.

Donnelly, not Mourdock, is the one currently serving in Washington. He was elected to the U.S. House in 2006. Mourdock is the state treasurer.
