Hotline Sort: McCain Keeps Distance From Mourdock

4) In Montana's Senate race, a judge has ordered the release of an edited version of an investigative report on GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg's 2009 boating accident. 3) Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has donated $1.5 million to the PAC supporting Republican George Allen in Virginia's Senate race. 2) Here's former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona's closing pitch in the Arizona Senate race, casting himself as independent. "I'm not worried about getting reelected, I'm not worried about whose party's in power," the Democrat says in the ad. "I'm going to go and work real hard, and make it easier and better for the struggling families in our country." 1) Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says his continued support of Richard Mourdock is contingent on the Indiana GOP Senate nominee apologizing for his comments that pregnancy resulting from rape is God's intention. "It's when you don't own up to it that people will not believe in you," he said. President Obama also spoke about the comments while apeparing on the "Tonight Show." "You know, I don't know how these guys come up with these ideas," said the president. "Let me make a very simple proposition. Rape is rape. It is a crime, and so these various distinctions about rape don't make too much sense to me, don't make any sense to me." "The second thing that underscores it though is this is exactly why you don't want a bunch of politicians, mostly males, making decisions about women's health care decisions," he said. And former GOP Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour just weighed in on "CBS This Morning": "Well, I don't agree with what he said. I thought what he said was kind of crazy." and the United Food and Commercial Workers are extending an ad buy in the race -- another week, for $320,000.
