Sen. Dick Lugar has at least one top state Republican on his side in his GOP primary fight against state Treasurer Richard Mourdock.
Gov. Mitch Daniels said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that he’ll back Lugar, calling the Senator his political “role model.”
“If he wants another term, he ought to have it,” Daniels said. He added that Mourdock was a friend and that he won’t campaign during the primary.
