We’ve known that Richard Lugar (R) Indiana was going to get primaried by a more conservative opponent. What we’ve now learned is that the challenger (Richard Mourdock – state treasurer) has already received the endorsement of most of the county chairs as well as the republican’s state executive committee.
Mourdock made lofty claims last week about lining up support. But we’re getting word that the county chair support may be as high as the 80% mark so far.
Mourdock announces tomorrow (Tuesday). We’ll be giving our first rating of the race in a few days, so stay tuned.
