Haley Barbour Endorses Dick LugarOctober 7th, 2011 at 10:52 am by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
The governor of Mississippi wants Dick Lugar to be re-elected. “Dick Lugar was a conservative before the word conservative became cool,” says Haley Barbour in a statement released by the Lugar campaign. “Hoosiers know that he is the real deal.”
Apparently there is a concern, however, that some Hoosiers don’t. This is another endorsement meant to offset Tea Party backing for Lugar primary opponent Richard Mourdock.
