Sarah Palin has endorsed Richard Mourdock in the GOP Senate primary in Indiana dubbing the insurgent challenger as the "conservative choice" in the race against Sen. Dick Lugar. ...
"Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate... and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C."

Mourdock isn't perfect but he is infinitely more conservative, is Tea Party backed, and a challenger to the GOP-e.
Mittwit backer Mitch Daniels favors Lugar over Mourdock but has said that he will support the one who wins this GOP primary. Again, just one of many Romney backers who supports the GOP-e over the Tea Party.
BTW, a very recent poll has Mourdock up by 5 points over Lugar and Lugar's campaign is desperate right now.
Good. I don’t know that much about Mourdock, but Lugar has become a pork guzzler of the worst kind, with tons of seniority, and getting him out of the Senate will be very helpful.
Can’t wait for American Crossroads to get behind Tea Party candidates and those running for re-election and spend about a million or so defending them with ad buys in the upcoming “orphan” races in New York and elsewhere - the ones that Boehenr has pointed out. /sarcasm.
You can TELL Lugar’s folks know he’s in trouble by the amount of ad money they are spending absolutely trashing Mourdock. I’m not sure he can win, but believe it or not, a PALIN ENDORSEMENT could be the deciding factor for me.
Then, it puts him up against the lying lizard Joe Donelly, who ran promising to vote AGAINST Obamacare and Pelosi in the 2010, then promptly voted FOR IT less than two weeks after, in the lame duck session!
God bless Sarah!
Any link to that poll?
People are already saying that the Dem is going to lose, regardless of opponent. Dems are writing him off already... Lol.
Hatch and Lugar—two old turkeys long past their Thanksgiving day disposal date.
The survey, taken Tuesday and Wednesday by Wenzel Strategies on behalf of Citizens United, places Mourdock at 44 percent and Lugar at 39 percent. Nearly 17 percent remain undecided with just 12 days to go until the Indiana Senate primary.
Note: Citizens United is backing Mourdock and this is their poll.....
Weiner/Frank take the pairs award.
The TEA Party is BACK!!
Game On Mr. Lugar!
This is gonna be good....A PROXY FIGHT BETWEEN PALIN AND ROMNEY!!! Mittens endorsed Lugar.
I hope Palin endorses Mia Love (UT-4) and Michael Williams (TX-25).
Now THIS is where Palin is best. Kingmaker!!!
This is going to make McConnell, Alexander, McCainiac, Grahamnesty, Snowe-job, and Murkowski really angry. And might make Hatch pretty nervous.
How sweet! Someone just yelled ‘she’s back’!!!
And romney says ‘oh no’ - roll those (over used) presses!
Take that 50th try at ‘Newt is stepping down to support me’ off the presses and replace it with.....!
Not even gonna say what it'll do to Rove's panties............
