I remember seeing Lugar on the Capitol steps in July of 1991.  I got a photo of him and he looked surprised that some young college aged kid was interested in him I suppose.  I also got a photo of the back of General Schwarzkopf's head on that memorable visit to DC. (he was testifying before a congressional committee.).  Lugar has had an amazing run, he was mayor of Indianapolis before most of us on this board were born.

Anyone have any feelings about how well Lugar will do in Indianapolis region.  I'm guessing he'll win that area, and if thats the case how much of a cushion does Mourdoch need in the rest of the state?

It's not looking like Lugar is going to win anywhere but Indianapolis.

Stick a fork in Lugar; he's even losing Marion County now.

Polls close in N.C. in 15 minutes.

This seat will be competitive but it's certainly not even Lean Dem at this point.

Lugar is a great senator and was one of the last good guys left in the GOP. This is truly a shame.

I saw Kathleen Falk on the sidewalk today on my lunch break a couple of blocks from my office. She was surrounded by a gaggle of people standing around with signs with her name on it; I suppose the idea was that members of the public went up to talk to her in person. But I didn't; it just would have been incredibly awkward for both of us. Then a mere half hour later when I emerged from Chipotle Mexican Grill in the other direction, the entire operation had been completely uprooted and they were on to the next.

Actually being a politician must be so weird.

I agree Lugar is a good guy but we want a conservative in that seat.

I don't even think it will be competitive. I think this will be one of those races where we look back in November and say, "Remember when this was going to be close? LOL!"

Well, then. Here's to cautiously hoping Mourdock makes at least some semi-decent votes.

I'll never understand people feeling sorry for elderly congresscritters who are finally forced to move on after 30+ year careers.

Is Lugar going to be able to run as a write-in or independent candidate similar to Alaska's Senate race in 2010?

If I recall, he said he isn't accepting write-in votes.

No, Indiana has a sore loser law so he can't pull a Murky/Lieberman. Nor does he want to.

Amendment 1 is going to pass by a lot; "No" only got 57% in the early vote in Mecklenburg.
