Haley Barbour Endorses Dick Lugar

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.
