Congressman Neugebauer receiving contributions after 'baby killer' outburst

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Days after his 'baby killer' outburst, Congressman Randy Neugebauer is running a campaign ad vowing to continue speaking out against abortion and it seems to be paying off.

In the 80 second video posted on his campaign web site, he says he'll never quit speaking on behalf of the unborn.

Since Sunday's outburst, people across the nation have sent contributions to Neugebauer because of his anti-abortion stance. But Texas Tech Political Science Professor Cindy Rugeley says she isn't surprised the ad is bringing in money for the Congressman.

"He is probably arguing that he's not being rewarded for what he's doing - but that's he's being an advocate of abortion rights," says Rugeley.

Neugebauer will face Democrat Andy Wilson and Libertarian Chip Peterson in the November election.
