    Potential challenger 'increasingly concerned' with Sen Lugar

    The Hill
    Potential challenger 'increasingly concerned' with Sen. Lugar's actions
    By Shane D'Aprile - 12/04/10 03:15 PM ET

    Indiana state Senator Mike Delph (R) hinted at a primary challenge to Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) in an email to supporters Friday.

    The conservative state lawmaker, who has been mentioned by some Tea Party activists in the state as an early favorite to take on Lugar, said he was "deeply moved" by the encouragement he has received in recent weeks.

    "Senator Lugar is my Senator and I have supported him in the past, but have become increasingly concerned with his actions on my behalf and on behalf of Indiana within the last few years," Delph wrote.

    Lugar has quickly become a top Tea Party target in 2012, with activists in Indiana and nationwide vowing to find a candidate to oust the longtime Senator in a Republican primary.

    While Delph said he has "neither ruled in nor ruled out" a run, he certainly sounded like a candidate in the message, going after Lugar's support of the DREAM Act.

    Delph demanded an apology from Lugar for his spokesman Mark Helmke's suggestion "that those of us who object to the DREAM Act, a bill that would grant blanket amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants, are 'un-American.' It is my hope that Sen. Lugar apologizes for the words of his staff and clearly lets them know that differences of viewpoint are precisely American."

    I don't agree with him on amnesty and the DREAM Act but in what other ways is Lugar a RINO?

    I think Lugar should go too, along with everyone else who supported the Dream Act. To call US "unAmerican' when he is the one with his nose up foreign butt, is truly a national disgrace for which he should apologize as he submits his resignation and slithers out of public service.

    Great links, Airbone.

    Yeah, there's nothing conservative about Lugar. Where do you think Laura Ingraham coined the term "McHaGar?" Hmm?

    I think we need to find a candidate with more oomph to challenge him though, because forcing a primary that Lugar wins in a landslide would be even worse than not putting up a challenger in the first place.

    Perhaps the former Vice-President can come out of retirement? Maybe Hostetler can try his hand against him? I know he's lost his last few campaigns, but he's still got widespread name recognition.
