Mourdock Pledges to Stand Up Against McConnell

Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock has pledged to join a group of conservatives to either overthrow or challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., if he wins in November.

The Indiana state treasurer is backed by the tea party and is challenging six-term incumbent Dick Lugar in today's closely watched GOP primary. Political observers expect Mourdock to win the race and go on to face Democratic Congressman Joe Donnelly in the general election.
