The Axe Man Cometh


(PHOTO CREDIT -- Howey Politics Indiana)

Indiana Treasurer Republican Richard Mourdock's primary challenge of Sen. Richard Lugar, hasn't gotten off to the fastest start. He has struggled to raise money and failed to win the endorsement of some conservative groups like the Club for Growth which want to see Lugar's career in the Senate come to an end.

But Mourdock's luck might be about to change once voters get a look at a photograph posted Thursday on Howey Politics Indiana, a Hoosier state politics news site. The picture, which shows Mourdock holding a large axe, apparently comes from a 2010 "Hunks on the Right" calendar put out by the Indianapolis Tea Party. According to the group's website, the calendar, which also features Indiana GOP chairman Eric Holcomb, can be yours for the low price of $10.00.
