Democrat for Governor John Gregg is wasting no time comparing his opponent Mike Pence to Richard Mourdock. 

Listen:

Gregg held a press conference with his running-mate Vi Simpson to critique what they called Pence's "extremist" view on abortion. But both Pence and Gregg have called themselves pro-life candidates, while Vi Simpson is pro-choice. Gregg doesn't think this paradox will be confusing for voters either because he says his openness to ideas is what really sets him apart from his republican opponent. 

Meanwhile, Simpson attacked Pence for being inconsistent, and for voting in favor of legislation that would ban abortion except when the mother's health is at risk.
