    Rep Senator Richard Lugar will not be returning to the Senate next year. He has lost the Indiana Senate primary to Richard Mourdock. Mourdock is a far more partisan that Lugar.

    Lugar has warned Mourdock on his current mindset after he won.
    “If Mr. Mourdock is elected, I want him to be a good Senator.  But that will require him to revise his stated goal of bringing more partisanship to Washington. He and I share many positions, but his embrace of an unrelenting partisan mindset is irreconcilable with my philosophy of governance and my experience of what brings results for Hoosiers in the Senate.”
