"Had Democrats like Brad Ellsworth held firm in opposing federal funding for abortion in the health care bill, we likely would have rewarded such action with a bipartisan endorsement policy. Ellsworth's collapse under pressure from the White House and Speaker Pelosi, as well as the collapse of his colleagues Joe Donnelly and Baron Hill, leaves us with no alternative. Leadership matters, and the reality is that Democratic leaders are advancing an abortion agenda at an alarming rate that will only be checked by a Republican majority."

-- Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee chairman Mike Fichter announcing that the PAC would refuse endorsements to all Democratic candidates. Rep Brad Ellsworth's anti-abortion positions have cost him dearly with support from progressives for his Senate candidacy and now the anti-choice folk are abandoning him too. How'd that Republican-lite strategy work out for him?
