Skip to comments.Dick Lugar's Indiana Loss Is a Win for Democrats
Posted on 05/09/2012 9:21:11 AM PDT by central_va
In a tough year for Senate campaigns, Democrats will take everything they can get.
This year's map of Senate races heavily favors the GOP, which will defend only 10 seats to Democrats' 23. Six Democratic incumbents have declined to run, and Democrats will have to defend seats in 11 competitive races, while Republicans will only defend in five.
All of which makes Sen. Dick Lugar's loss welcome news for Democrats, who seem to have figured all along that their candidate, Blue Dog Rep. Joe Donnelly, would fare better against Tea Party-backed, Saran Palin-endorsed state Treasurer Richard Mourdock in November.
Now that Mourdock has defeated the six-term senator, Democrats might have a chance at winning a seat they had otherwise written off.

Obama is so unpopular in Indiana that the democrats have no chance to win anything here. The writers of this article are delusional. I live in IN and the majority of people here are disillusioned with liberalism after the democrats had the supermajority during obama's first two years.
...and Dan Rather insist blah blah blah.......
I wonder if Chris Good has EVER voted for a Pubbie?
That’s what happens when you drink Kool-Aid, not TEA!
ABC = All Bull Crap
The MSM is simply a propaganda engine for the status quo FedGov socialist machine. Wormtungue media.....
Donnelly is SO confident of an Indiana win, that he is now calling for a subpoena of Holder on F&F.
This is great. The author and his audience can take comfort in this ignorant conclusion. Indiana has a great guvnah and an enthusiastic conservative candidate. Power to the people.
I don’t see Lugar’s defeat as helping the Democrats, I see it as sending a massage to RINO’s like Lugar who like to vote with Democrats.
Oh, that IS bad.
This guy is not high on Kool-Aid, he’s got a serious drug problem!!! And....goodbye Dick Lugar, you turncoat Obamabot!!! Pubbies win big and across the board in Indiana come November, 2012
You knew this was coming. Pee-ing on the parade is what MSM does next.
A “win” for Lugar would also be a win for Democrats.
“Indiana has a great guvnah and an enthusiastic conservative candidate. “
Man, where have you been? Indiana’s “great guvnah” supported and appeared in campaign ads for Lugar.
Mitch needs to go.
They always count a loss as a win. LOL They can’t help it.
Their brains are different from normal humans.
Blue Dog my a$$! Joe donelly is a Chicago Liberal, Union backed thug of a politician. His voting base is largely from the Gary, IN area and Chicago suburbs in NW IN.
Where does the MSM get off calling him a "Blue Dog Demograt"?
I am curious to see if he parades Sarah Palin’s name out after Mourdock wins in November.
Nah.....after rethinking this, Mr. Chris Good is not high on either Kool-Aid or drugs, he is just simply totally insane!!! End of story.
OK, so Joe Donnelly will lose by 15 points instead of 30 points.
Nice liberal MSM spin trying to paint lipstick on this election, which was GOOD for conservatives and BAD for liberals.
