Another GOP Senate Candidate Makes Abortion Gaffe

Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Tom Smith (R) "inadvertently waded into the war of words over rape and abortion on Monday -- the very issue his party has been trying to steer clear of these days," the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"Asked about his stance on abortion, Smith said he opposes it, with no exceptions. He then seemed to compare a woman's decision to have a child outside of marriage to having one from rape."

Politics PA has audio of the exchange.
