Donnelly Compares Mourdock to Heckler

In the Indiana Senate race, Democratic candidate Joe Donnelly has launched a new ad criticizing Republican Richard Mourdock for rejecting compromise.The 30-second spot features Donnelly on a basketball court coaching a group of children with a message of teamwork and a Mourdock impersonator heckling the congressman from the bleachers."You know, nothing gets done by yelling from the bleachers," says Donnelly. "It’s time for Hoosier common sense."Since the bitter GOP primary between Mourdock and longtime Sen. Richard Lugar ended, Donnelly has been touting bipartisanship and cooperation to contrast with his Republican opponent's Tea Party support.After the primary election, Mourdock told reporters that "compromise" was Democrats agreeing with Republicans on most issues.
