Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson says that voters in his state are going to vote for GOP hopeful Mitt Romney because they are not “at all” concerned about preserving reproductive rights for women.

On Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Johnson why women should vote for Romney after he endorsed Republican Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who recently said that pregnancy from rape “is something that God intended to happen.”

“I’ve had one person at all talk about the abortion issue during this entire campaign,” the tea party-backed senator explained. “It’s not even an issue here in Wisconsin. I mean, it doesn’t even move the radar at all.”

“What people are concerned about is — it is unbelievable how many people came up to me demanding answers on Benghazi,” Johnson added. “That’s really the question on the table in the last ten days, is what happened in Benghazi.”

“Abortion doesn’t even show up.”
