EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock says he hasn't ruled out another run for political office - something he said he considered after his loss for a U.S. Senate seat.
Mourdock, a Republican, lost to Democrat Joe Donnelly in the race for Republican Sen. Richard Lugar's seat after coming under criticism for his comment during an Oct. 23 debate that pregnancy resulting from rape is "something God intended." At an event in Evansville on Friday night, Mourdock said he has recovered mentally and physically from his loss to Donnelly and would consider another run for office, the Evansville Courier & Press reported ( http://bit.ly/WCPpJi).
