Howey Blasts Mourdock

Political columnist Brian Howey portrays Richard Mourdock harshly in his opinion piece that appeared in today's J&C. Mourdock, who has hardly been seen lately, "is hiding from voters, instead using the millions of dollars of Super PACs who are buying his vote for the TV ads you see every day." Mourdock's stated opposition to working with Democrats leads Howey to conclude that there is "a temperament issue" with Mourdock that merits consideration by voters: "The question voters should be asking is this: Does this candidate want to be a legislator who gets things done? Or a partisan warrior in a system that is already gridlocked as the extreme wings drive the party agendas?" Read Howey's entire analysis here.
