Richard Mourdock, who is a great conservative and a favorite of almost every Tea Party and conservative group, had one of those days most politicians only dream of yesterday. Mourdock is running to replace Richard Lugar, the crown prince of the RINOs, as one of the Senators from Indiana.
So what happened?
First, Sarah Palin endorsed Mourdock. Her endorsement, coming just days before Indiana’s primary is huge for Mourdock.
Palin wrote on her Facebook page: I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.
Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C.
The other really good news came in the form of news that American Action Network was pulling out of the Indiana primary. This news did not make headlines but it is hugely significant.
AAN has been supporting RINO Richard Lugar. They were buying TV ads and using digital media to support Lugar. They have pulled the plug on their efforts.
Officially the race between Mourdock and Lugar is too close to call. AAN would not be pulling out if it were really that close.
AAN sees the race as a loss for Lugar and has decided to quit throwing good money after bad.
This is great news in the Tea Party’s battle against the RINO establishment. John McCain and Indiana’s RINO governor Mitch Daniels have endorsed Lugar. If John McCain endorses a candidate, you probably cannot go wrong if you oppose that candidate without doing any further research.
Much as 2010 was the year for the Tea Party Congress, we need to make 2012 the year of the Tea Party Senate. In the next couple of months we are going to have a lot of races and a lot of Tea Party candidates who need our support. In Maine, Scott D’amboise is taking on the establishment. In Virginia, Tea Party organizer Jamie Radtke is running for the Senate. In Missouri, Sarah Steelman is running against several establishment candidates. In Texas, Ted Cruz is running against an establishment Lieutenant Governor and in Utah Dan Liljenquist is running against Ted Kennedy’s favorite Republican Orrin Hatch.
Richard Mourdock’s primary is on May 8th. Please go to his site and see what you can do to help him push Lugar out of the way. Donate and volunteer. Remember Lugar is Barack Obama’s favorite Republican. Let’s make Lugar Obama’s favorite retired Republican.
We may have a liberal Republican as the Presidential nominee, but we can still win the war of 2012. But we must put conservatives in the Senate and the House.
Richard Mourdock’s battle in Indiana is the first one. It will be the first Tea Party victory of 2012. This fight isn’t over yet.
We need everyone on deck for this fight.
Let’s go out and win one this year for freedom, liberty and for America!
I like Mourdock and will vote for him on May 8th. But, calling Mitch Daniels a RINO is uncalled for. I was upset to see him support Lugar but will not throw him under the bus for that, he has done too much for our state.
You are claiming that we have a liberal Republican as the Republican party candidate based on what? If you have a bias and share it, you encourage your readers to accept your opinion without studying the man on his own merits. Watch and see. To gain the Republican nomination against the establishment you have to be a moderate (until the establishment is taken down). To save our country, you need to support conservative principles. Watch and learn but please don't poison the well. - p
Lugar sold us out a long time ago. He said a lot of nasty things about the Tea Party. He voted with the democrats numerous times. He supported the liberal judges named to the Supreme Court by Obama. He's against the NRA. He supports the Dream Act. He wants to give illegal aliens citizenship. He supported ObamaCare at first but now he says he's against it. Plain and simply, he doesn't represent his constituents here in Indiana. If you don't believe me then Google Richard Lugar.
One of the best indicators of a RINO is when they make statements like Lugar did here:
People like that HAVE to go; it's almost not negotiable America. We are in desperate need of leadership and those willing to make huge and rapid changes TOWARDS significantly down sizing Government and AWAY from business as usual CORRUPTION. Lugar has no clue........why do you think he was the poster boy for so many cartoons?
I live in Indiana and I'm going to vote for Mourdock.
Whether or not Ovomit is ousted from the presidency matters not. WE have to take control of the other branches of our system. It may take a couple more cycles to take commanding control but we must.
