Skip to comments.Richard Lugar: U.S. Senator Defends His Indiana Residency
Posted on 03/03/2012 9:23:46 AM PST by Clintonfatigued
Tea Party groups in Indiana have made him their No. 1 target, saying the silver-hailed senator has strayed from Republican principles too many times.
They are backing state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, creating Lugar's first Republican primary challenge since he took office.
Another complication: Lugar's startling revelation that he sold his home in Indianapolis and bought one outside Washington shortly after winning his first election to the Senate three decades ago.

Lugar was one of the first “republicans” to sign on with the Chicago climate exchange. He found a way to get paid for letting trees grow on his Lugar farms property. (Carbon sequestration)
Richard Lugar is Barack Obama’s favorite Repubican U.S. Senator, as well. He was the first Republican to support Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. He needs to be removed.
Norm Dicks has decided not to run for re-election, so now there are no more “dicks” in the House. If we turn “Dick” Lugar out of office, there will be one less “dick” in the Senate. These are good things!!!
Lugar needs to be gone...he sooooooo 70s.
Started in the wire service. All the outlets are repeating the same. They don't even read their own stuff; they just pass it along through the party aligned service. English is dead.
Lunar- what our founding fathers had in mind with part time citizen government..../s
Even if he were not a Rino, he’s been in the senate since 1976. Time to retire, go fishing with the grand kids.
Yes, but Fluke will be sad with all those Dicks gone.
He’ll be primaried out of office in about 60 days.
Then he can follow the Specter principle, and change party affiliation.
Lugar has already gone negative. He must be getting scared!
We got the Establishment on the run, keep up the pressure!!!!
“Yes, but Fluke will be sad with all those Dicks gone.”
Or was it a Fluke that the Dicks are leaving? And then there’s the matter of there being no more Snowe in the Senate either. All of it is good!
Lugar (IN) & Hatch (UT) both have to go. We failed with McCain, lets not repeat this diaster.
I don’t see where he defends his Indiana residency (or lack, thereof)
It's always been that way.
People imagine they've reinvented residency as a reason to kick out a sitting politician on an almost predictable schedule.
It's like thieves ~ every one of them I ever caught thought he'd invented something new that no one else would notice.
The residency issue was settled centuries ago in England anyway.
thanks...I’m not questioning the residency.(though, with surface info, it seems strange he can vote and claim residency from a residence he no longer owns)..
I was just commenting about the headline and the fact that it’s not sustained in the body of the article.
The real problem is that Hoosiers are not being represented. We have been told that Lugar’s job is not to represent Hoosiers but everyone. We are supporting Richard Mourdock!
If Right-To-Work can pass in Indiana, of all places, why can’t an establishment hack like Richard Lugar be unseated? I hope that Indiana Freepers make this race their #1 priority for May 2012.
