After a rough week, Richard Mourdock has started hitting back at Joe Donnelly's attempt to portray Mourdock as "pro-rape." It's unclear if the gaffe moved the needle much. Mourdock released a poll yesterday by McLaughlin & Associates, a well-regarded Republican polling firm, showing the race tied....

Nothing has changed, in my view. Mourdock's comments are being portrayed as "pro-rape" by his political opponents, but that is a gross mischaracterization.  Some thoughtful writers have pointed this out even as they disagree with Mourdock on substance, including this post at WaPo by Melinda Hennenberger: Last spring,...

Legal Insurrection first became interested in Richard Mourdock in November 2011, long before others thought he had a chance of defeating Richard Lugar in the primary, and endorsed him on February 28. We followed that primary through to victory night, and since then have tracked Mourdock's...

I've noted before that Dick Lugar has been less than dignified in his loss to Richard Mourdock.  We supported Mourdock early in the primaries and he is on the Operation Counterweight Final List. Mourdock has gone out of his way not to bad mouth Lugar's sore...

After two months of attack ads from Richard Lugar, and Lugar and his supporters slow to help, it's not surprising that Richard Mourdock is just a little bit ahead of Joe Donnelly in the latest Rasmussen Poll (via Power Line): The U.S. Senate race in Indiana...

Darin at Reboot Congress has an interesting video of Richard Mourdock, running for Senate in Indiana against Democrat Joe Donnelly. Mourdock, who defeated Dick Lugar in the primary, is part of Operation Counterweight.  Mourdock still is playing catch up on fundraising, after he spent so much in...

I have previously highlighted Richard Mourdock's attempt to close the cash gap with Democrat Joe Donnelly. At one level Mourdock has been successful, outraising Donnelly in the 2d Quarter, but since he started behind by $800k and had to spend money on the primary, he still...

Now that Richard Mourdock has defeated Dick Lugar and is well into his general election campaign against Democrat Joe Donnelly, it is of paramount importance that we keep Mourdock’s campaign for Senate strong. Top-tier Republican figures are aware of this, as evidenced by Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s...

It's pretty unfair to compare Dana Milbank and Jayson Blair by lumping them together with no real connection, isn't it? Almost as bad as this headline and column from Dana Milbank lumping Richard Mourdock and federal prisoner Keith Judd together, Richard Mourdock and Keith Judd vs....

That's the name of a Twitter account which has been active throughout the Indiana primary, and it certainly hit the mark: Lots of telephone calls were flying between politicians on election night. Treasurer Richard Mourdock said he has received numerous calls congratulating him on his win in...

It's not enough for Operation Counterweight to get a candidate through the primary.  We need to support the candidate immediately to keep the momentum going. Richard Mourdock is not running to the left (often mischaracterized as running to the center) one bit. Listen to this interview, which has the mainstream...

Opening new post for post-results -- problems with embedded tweet codes here. % Reporting - 95 Mourdock - 60 Lugar - 40 Sen. John Kerry: Sen. Lugar's defeat is a "tragedy for the Senate" #INSEN— Bahman Kalbasi (@BahmanKalbasi) May 9, 2012 Obama: As a friend and former colleague, I want to...

"It's time" has been Richard Mourdock's campaign theme.  "It's time" captured beautifully why it's time to retire Dick Lugar:  Too long in office, too long in Washington, D.C., too long considering himself to be the office he holds, too willing to go along to get along,...

Dick Lugar has jumped the shark with this ad he just released, via The Weekly Standard: With this ad, Dick Lugar deserves to be remembered as a dishonorable politician who would stoop to anything to get reelected. I hope Indiana voters tell him not to let the door hit...

I've been traveling without a computer this weekend but this story at IndyStar is worth a PDA post, so excuse some formatting issues like no embedded links. The inclination I've had to feel sorry for Dick Lugar that his career may reach an inglorious end is...

He was kind enough to call me, and we had a great conversation. I realize it's a lot easier to get a return call from someone not at the top in the polls, but not all candidates are that way.  (I've been trying to talk to...

This is sad, via IndyStar: “Every person in Indiana who wants me to continue, every person wherever they might be at this point, I encourage them to come out,” he said. “Come out immediately, as fast as you can.” ...
