EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Republican Senate candidate Mike McFadden is praising the Supreme Court’s recent decision that companies with religious objections can avoid the contraceptives requirement in President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

McFadden’s support comes more than a week after the high court’s ruling — and after Democrats have been attacking him for not taking a position.

McFadden told party supporters in Eagan on Wednesday that he’s pleased the court “stood for religious freedom.”

He also said he’d like to explore making contraceptives more affordable over the counter.

McFadden and state Rep. Jim Abeler are running in a primary to decide who takes on Democratic Sen. Al Franken.
