Senate candidate Joe Donnelly (D) visited the Indiana Math and Science Academy, an Indianapolis charter school, on Thursday morning.

A day after Richard Mourdock's comments about rape and abortion during the Senate debate Tuesday night, Donnelly says he's sticking to his issues, education among them.

He calls Mourdock's comments unacceptable and disrespectful. Donnelly isn't saying how much additional support, if any, his campaign is receiving as a result of the controversy.
