Bailey 157 at http://wfpl.org New Lugar Attack Ad Targets Mourdock's Judgment http://wfpl.org/post/new-lugar-attack-ad-targets-mourdocks-judgment <p>With the Indiana Republican primary a week away, incumbent Sen. Dick Lugar released a vicious new attack ad Tuesday, chastising challenger Richard Mourdock over his decision-making as state treasurer. The 30-second spot accuses the Tea Party backed Mourdock of gambling with state &quot;pensions on junk bonds&quot; and alleges he &quot;risked thousands of Hoosier jobs&quot; by filing a lawsuit against the Chrysler bankruptcy on behalf of two pension funds. The petition went all the way to the Supreme Court, but the justices denied the motion. Wed, 02 May 2012 17:01:35 +0000 Phillip M. Bailey 106 at http://wfpl.org
