Indiana is officially Lugarless

Who says the Tea Party is dead? Not Indiana. In an astounding victory for Conservatives the Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock trounced Sen. Dick Lugar who has been in office for 36 years. According to the Indiana Secretary of State’s office Mourdock has over 45,000 votes to Lugar’s measly 25,000 so the race was called very early for Mourdock. Mourdock is presently Indiana’s state treasurer.

Courtesy of @DanaBashCNN below is a picture of Lugar’s campaign HQ: empty. Apparently he has yet to concede.

We told you so, Dick. It was way past time for you to go and it was the “undead” Tea Party who had had enough of your “out of touch” policies and helped Mourdock to victory. Lugar has been labeled as “Obama’s favorite Republican” because of his record of voting with the Democrats. Lugar also didn’t help himself when it came to light he no longer had a residence in Indiana.

Mourdock now faces Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in the general election. Republicans need 4 senate seats to acquire a majority, let’s hope Mourdock is one of them.

I strongly disagree with you LIO, and I usually do agree with you. If Indiana is officially Dickless, then Joe Donnelly wins the US Senate seat instead of Dick Mourdock. 8) Now it might be a less risque title, but if you change is to Indiana is officially Lugarless we are back in complete agreement.

This is great news for the Hoosier state, and I expect Mourdock to be a great addition to the Senate.

Lugar: A little too old, a little out of touch and way too accommodating to his good friends who weren’t.

Thank you, Indiana.
