Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The man who wants to be the next Junior Senator from Indiana stopped in Fort Wayne Thursday to blast his opponent on health care.

Richard Mourdock appeared with Congressman Marlin Stutzman to draw a contrast between his position on Obama Care and that of the Democrat nominee, Joe Donnelly, Mourdock pointed out that Donnelly supported the Healthcare Reform Act which the latest polls say more than 60 percent of Americans oppose.

GOP Senate Nominee Mourdock says, "He supported it, he voted for it and 43 Catholic organizations have filed suit against it. Even his Alma Mater of Notre Dame opposes it. He has not come out in favor of that lawsuit and I have."

Mourdock then criticized the medical device industry tax in the health care bill that he said threatens a $10 billion Hoosier industry and 20,000 Indiana jobs.
