Senator Lugar Expected To Lose Today
This is not good news for those who think compromise and intelligence are more important in politics than shouting and spitting.
– AP’s Tom LoBianco in Indianapolis : ‘The face of Indiana politics for nearly four decades, Republican Sen. Richard Lugar is battling for political survival against a tea party-backed GOP challenger who says the senator has become more interested in compromising with liberals in Washington than representing conservatives back home. … Although polls in Indiana signaled momentum for the challenger, Lugar hoped a heavy turnout would propel him to victory against Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock. ‘If they come, we will win,’ Lugar said.’
