INDIANAPOLIS -- U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar said he doesn't intend to campaign for the man who defeated him in Indiana's Republican primary.
Lugar said Sunday on CBS' "Face The Nation" that he would not actively campaign on behalf of GOP senatorial nominee Richard Mourdock. The state treasurer will face Democrat Joe Donnelly in November.

All I can say is thank God we have a sour grapes law here in Indiana. I'd bet the farm he would run as an independent knowing full well he would split the vote and hand it to the Dems.
He is the perfect example of why we desperately need term limits, but how can we get that accomplished when they are the only ones who can impose it on themselves? The only other way I see is a Con-Con and that would scare the hell out of me now.
Sore loser. He can’t clean out his office soon enough for my taste.
....expecting anything different from this POS would have been very naive.
Lugar was too old during his first term. It didn’t take long to see what a globalist and a RINO he was. His pukey, repulsive countenance won’t be needed if a candidate wants to win.
**** lugar... best $150.00 that I ever spent! Of course he will not campaign for the republican... he is and always has been a rat bastid dim.
Of course Lugar won’t campaign for Mourdock. Sourest grapes in town. Why, a Man of His Years DESERVES more respect than was shown him.
Senility takes many forms.
He shouldn’t be actively campaigning. That’s the point!
Lugar is a posterboy for exactly what’s wrong with D.C.
Reading the comment section is amazing, 95% of those comments are from admitted democrats, praising Lugar for being the only intelligent republican, a true statesman, a man who would listen to reason and vote to the center.
It really is a great place to see just why, conservatives in Indiana got rid of Lugar.
Everyone chants, "we should throw the bums out" (Just not my bum...)
This time we really did throw the bum out.
While conservatives are supposed to back whoever wins the nomination, the RINOs never back the conservative. Rove in Delaware, Newt in NY23. They’re all the same.
Lugar said he doesn’t intend to campaign for the man who defeated him in Indiana’s Republican primary.
....that’s a load off Mourdock’s mind.
But Rove and company would demand that Mourdock campaign for Lugar. For conservatives must always support the moderate. But moderates never support conservatives. Lugar will probably vote for the democrat.
Lugar can take that phony smile of his and hang with his pals in the steam room.
Sounds a bit like Hitler’s retreat strategy....”if I can’t have it nobody can”.
Lugar: the Mike Castle of Indiana.
A pox on them both.
He will nenceforth be known as Sen. Sour Grapes.
This goes on all the time in New Jersey. When Liberal elites get nominated, they are supported by the schnook conservatives in the general election and then go on to act like Dems if they are elected. If a conservative is nominated, the elitist RINOs refuse to support him/her and actively conspire to defeat him/her.
This goes back at least as far as Barry Goldwater back in 1964 when Keating, Javits and Nelson Rockefeller mugged for the camera with wide smiles as they walkd out of the Republican convention which nominated Godlwater and then went on with people like George Romney, Peter J. Frelinghuysen, etc. to actively work for Goldwater’s defeat, insuring a Johnson victory.
Expect Luger to eventually work against Mourdock.
These damn RINOs are really just wealthy Democrats who work for their own personal fiscal interests in the GOP while espousing Democrat social ideas.
This proves he’s nothing but a RINO. He can’t even be a man and accept the peoples’ choice. Nor can he be thankful for the years he had in office. Ingrate. Sour grapes from a sour old man. I hope he has a miserable retirement.
Bingo! I wouldn’t want that old RINO anywhere near my campaign. I would actually use him in my ads as an example of what I would be fighting against in Washington.
You’re right. It’s good ad material.
You’re darned right I’m not Lugar!
