We might just get Lugar. He is leading 42-36 in the last poll I saw in spite of outspending his opponent more than 10 to 1. Undecideds usually break for the challenger.

Normal people have seen just what the treasonous teabaggers stand for and I guarantee their candidates will be soundly defeated! They should stick to 'teabagging' each other!

What's amazing, is that with all this t-party crap, the GOP disregards all the t-party type candidates and instead make Romney the nominee, NOT because he's a t-party favorite, but because they think Romney can beat President Obama in a General Election.

...sorta like Angry Rick voting against his principles....just like the GOP establishment wanted.

Romney is the candidate MOST NOT LIKE a t-party pusher.

Looks like Orrin Hatch has realized he had to get his own Hatch-lings out to control the TEA influence in his state. Make no mistake, the Terrifying Errant Activist(TEA) party are alive and thriving in local and state politics. The Tea Party has strongholds like Virginia, Colorado, Louisiana, South Carolina, Florida and Texas and want to lull the population to sleep while they maneuver their people into power. They are very active locally and control monies, local infrastructure and power. This is the lunacy that has overtaken the fringe elements of the TEA-GOP-Republicans in control of states across the nation. The markets have signaled a new confidence in America as the president keeps his eye on the economy. The American people have made up their own minds to get things done without the assistance of the 112th Congress. Mitt Romney enthusiastically endorse the Paul Ryan budget, setting a course of debate across the nation on America's direction. The TEA-GOP-Republican's back Paul Ryan's proposed budget countering the middle class, the retired, the sick, children and America's infrastructure. Make no mistake, the Terrifying Errant Activist(TEA) party are alive and thriving in local and state politics. The Tea Party has strongholds like Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas and want to lull the population to sleep while they maneuver their people into power. They are very active locally and control monies, local infrastructure and power. America has been warned about the concentration of wealth in the hands of fewer and fewer people and the concentration of power in stricter, less compassionate hands. Get involved locally to control your lives. Get registered, get involved, vote! Then get out the vote!

Hope the teabaggers are successful. Might offer a pick-up for the Dems in IN. At worse, there will be a great loss in seniority.

Dream the dream! A Dem will NOT win our Senate seat. It might help them enough that they get 40% of the vote.:)

FYI:Richard Lugar (R-inc): 42
Richard Mourdock (R): 35

Joe Donnelly (D): 35
Richard Mourdock (R): 35

"If there was any doubt that six-term GOP incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar is in for his bumpiest reelection in, well, ever, those doubts should now be erased. We've previously gotten a few leaked internal polls giving us a vague sense that

a) Lugar doesn't have his primary locked down and

b) Democrat Joe Donnelly has a path to victory if Lugar loses his primary to Richard Mourdock, against whom the race is a tossup. And now we have a public poll (for local political tipsheet Howey Politics, performed by a Republican and a Democratic internal pollster) that confirms both of these points."

Sorry but I live here and know this state. Once the primary is over, those numbers will change radically. The Democratic Party has essentially committed suicide in this state over the past few years. They tried to be too much like the Dems in Wisconsin and Hoosiers won't put up with that garbage. They were better off disguising themselves as 'moderates' like Evan Bayh.
