Senator Richard Lugar IN Sen: Richard Mourdock Beats Senator Richard Lugar in GOP Primary

Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock has beaten long-time incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Richard Lugar in today’s Republican Primary Election.

Sen. Richard Lugar’s 36-year Senate career is now history.

Lugar was defeated in today’s Republican primary election by Treasurer Richard Mourdock, ending his bid for a seventh term in the U.S. Senate.

It wasn’t even close.

With 70 percent of the vote counted, Mourdock had 60 percent to Lugar’s 40 percent.

Mourdock will face Democrat U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly and Libertarian Andy Horning in the November election.

This is not really a surprise.

Senator Richard Lugar was too old, too establishment, too liberal for Indiana and stayed in office way too long. Indiana voters just wanted somebody else and a Senator who more closely identified with them.

Here is a video highlighting Senator Lugar’s career:

As I have said for months, the handwriting was on the wall, it was time for Lugar to retire.

Richard Lugar In Sen: Richard Mourdock Leads Sen. Richard Lugar By 10 Points

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, speaks with reporters off the Senate floor before a series of votes on Capitol Hill in Washington. Lugar’s allies have largely disappeared from the television airwaves just days before Tuesday’s primary, a sign that even friends of the six-term Republican think he’s in trouble and could lose to tea party-backed challenger Richard Mourdock

According to the Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll.

A new poll shows Treasurer Richard Mourdock building a commanding lead over Sen. Richard Lugar.

The Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll, conducted by two prominent Republican and Democratic pollsters, shows Mourdock with a 48 percent to 38 percent lead over Lugar.

It looks like Senator Lugar is fading under the weight of a vigorous campaign by Richard Mourdock.

As I have said over and over, Lugar should have gone out a winner and retired.

Palin and Mourdock IN Sen: Sarah Palin Endorses Richard Mourdock

In a blow to incumbent Senator Richard Lugar, former Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has endorsed Indiana Treasuer Richard Mourdock

I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.

Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C.

Richard Mourdock is the conservative choice for Indiana. Senator Lugar’s 36 years of service as a Senator are appreciated, but it’s time for the torch to pass to conservative leadership in Washington that promises to rein in government spending now.

Get the facts here. Learn more about Richard Mourdock at www.richardmourdock.com and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

- Sarah Palin

The election is coming up on May the 8th and the latest polls have Mourdock in the lead.

Senator Lugar might be able to pull out a victory, but it increasingly is looking like Lugar should have retired.

Lugar Obama Favorite IN Sen Video: Richard Mourdock Up With New Ad Linking Sen Lugar as President Obamas Favorite Republican

Indiana Republican challenger, Richard Mourdoc is up with a new hard hitting ad against Republican Senator Richard Lugar.

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.

Richard Mourdock talks about the differences between himself and Senator Lugar on the issue of Earmarks.

Here is the text of the ad:

Richard Mourdock: Every Year, Congress finds new ways to spend our money… and Sadly, Senator Lugar went along with it: voting for the Bridge to Nowhere, a rainforest in Iowa, even a teapot museum. When Senator Lugar recently had the chance to stop wasteful earmarks, he voted no. We’re fifteen trillion in debt and it has to stop. I’m Richard Mourdock and I approve this message because Dick Lugar won’t vote to end wasteful spending and earmarks. I will.

Indiana deserves a conservative U.S. Senator who actually lives in Indiana.

Richard Lugar has served his state and country for decades, but it is time for him to go.
