Brownback Political director Martin Gillespie and Brownback blogger Leon Wolf are going after Mitt Romney for his failure to label abortion “murder.

LifeNews.com reports:

”Martin Gillespie, political director of Sam Brownback's campaign seized on those comments and told LifeNews.com that he thought Romney was again changing his position on abortion.
