Tea Party Flexes its Muscle in Indiana Primary - Richard Lugar OUT!

The Indiana Tea Party is flexing its muscle this week as a shot across the bow in the 2012 election which includes efforts to get Barack Obama out of office as well as efforts to get the Democrats and RINO's out as well.

NBC News has declared Richard Mourdock as the projected winner in the Indiana Senate primary. Mourdock defeated Republican foreign policy elder statesman Sen. Richard Lugar.

Lugar, 80, lost to state treasurer Mourdock, who was backed by conservatives ranging from the National Rifle Association to local Tea Party activists to the Washington-based fiscal conservative group the Club for Growth.

Lugar was 36 years in the Senate and a friend of Barack Obama. Mourdock’s campaign ads tarred Lugar with his friendship with President Barack Obama. In 2005 Obama accompanied Lugar on a trip to Russia, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan to inspect weapons sites.

Mourdock criticized Lugar for voting for Obama’s two Supreme Court nominees and for his vote to end a filibuster on the Democratic-sponsored DREAM Act which many conservatives see as merely a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Taking the senior senator from Indiana out should be a powerful warning to other Republicans in Name Only. The Tea Party has teeth. And their not afraid to use them.
