Republican Mitt Romney's campaign says he still supports Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after Mourdock said "God intended" pregnancies that result from rape.

The campaign has not asked Mourdock to pull a TV ad featuring Romney.

Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said Wednesday that Romney disagrees with Mourdock's opposition to abortion in cases of rape and incest, but she says Romney still supports Mourdock's bid.

Romney's campaign has said he disagrees with Mourdock's remark.

Romney himself has not commented.

Mourdock made the comment during a debate Tuesday night with his opponent, Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly.

Romney recorded a TV ad supporting Mourdock's bid that began airing in Indiana this week, and a Romney official said the campaign has not asked Mourdock to stop airing the ad.
