Indiana Republican Senator Richard Lugar, a 6 term senator who was first elected in 1976, has been ousted from the Senate seat after his defeat in the Indiana primaries on Tuesday to Tea Party backed opposition.
Senator Lugar was seen as too willing to compromise and considered by many to be complacent in his approach to the problems of today. For others however, he was seen as one of the lone voices willing to reach across the isle and workout compromises which could effect good for the nation as a whole.
“While Dick and I didn’t always agree on everything,” President Obama said in a statement Tuesday night, “I found during my time in the Senate that he was often willing to reach across the aisle and get things done.”
Indiana state treasurer Richard E. Mourdock will be the Republican nominee for the Indiana senate seat for the great state of Indiana.
This may have opened up the seat for the Democrat challenger however as the Democrat party has already started taking aim at Mr. Mourdock's Conservative views and Tea Party backing. The Democrats are already salivating at the possible run for the seat.
