Mourdock Beating Lugar by Double Digits With Primary Days Away

Indiana has made the national news! We Hoosiers are so excited – it’s not everyday you see the word “Indiana” on Politico.com’s home page! Today’s reason for infamy? A new poll has just been released that puts tea-party challenger Richard Mourdock 10% ahead of incumbent Senator Dick Lugar as the May 8th Indiana GOP primary approaches.

This is big news, because many thought that the long-serving Lugar, who has been in office for 36+ years, had a decent chance to re-win his spot. It’s a bad day for any incumbent when he’s polling under 40% in his own party with a primary less than a week away. But Lugar has been mired in several residency scandals, including one in which he had to repay $14,000 to the US Treasury after abusing funds for his private hotel stays. Lugar has also been accused of shirking work to play golf, and received an F rating from the NRA for his “support” of gun rights.

His challenger, Richard Mourdock, has tried unsuccessfully to unseat him in the past, but can point to many successes in the public eye (including a stint as state treasurer) to justify his cause. DYNAMO enthusiastically supports Mr. Mourdock in his efforts to win election and change the direction our country is headed. He will make an excellent addition to the US Senate – so on May 8th, make sure you vote for him!
