Lugar Won't Campaign for Mourdock

One advantage Richard Mourdock won't have in his race for the Senate against Joe Donnelly is the voice of the man he ousted from his Senate seat. Former Senator Richar Lugar told CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday that he didn't "plan an active campaign" for Mourdock. In addition, Lugar repeated his criticism that Mourdock won’t be an effective senator unless he drops his position that Washington needs less bipartisanship: “I’ve offered advice to my former opponent and now candidate as to the kind of way he might be a constructive senator, how he can make any difference whatsoever. I hope that he will in fact begin to adopt some of those ideas.” Read more from the Indy Star here.
