I backtracked on abortion and tried to hide my views.
Let's be clear...I flip flop and lie when it best suits me.
In an ad posted to Twitter on Thursday, I sought to portray my opponent, Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, as the extremist on the issue while describing my own views as "commonsense."
I said the following: "Look, I support a ban on very late-term and partial-birth abortion," he said. "And most Americans agree with that. That would just put us on par with other civilized nations." (Late-term abortions are extremely rare, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tracker.)
Just after I released the ad, my campaign published an overhaul of my website softening my rhetoric, rewriting or erasing five of my six positions. Here are screenshots of before and after it was changed.
