Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock puts his most potent hits against incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar into one strong 30-second ad, which will begin airing today on broadcast and cable TV statewide. A disappointed-sounding older male narrator: “When Dick Lugar moved to Washington, he left behind more than his house. He left behind his conservative Hoosier values – voting for more earmarks, Obama’s liberal Supreme Court choices, amnesty for illegals, even supporting a $1 a gallon gas tax. Now they call him Obama’s favorite Republican. Lugar’s been in Washington for 36 years. That’s too long. Time for a change.” For the next 13 days, this is the hottest race in America.
Here is the ad:
This is a tough race for Senator Lugar.
He may win a narrow victory, but I would not be surprised if Indiana nominates Mourdock. Lugar has been there a long time and some would say too long.
