Republican Thomas Sounds Like a Candidate in Indiana Senate

Some very encouraging news for Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind.: Howey Politics reports that auto dealer Bob Thomas is preparing to enter the GOP Senate race. "I would say it will be a yes, based on everything I know," Thomas told the Hoosier State politics news website.

If Thomas does run, he'll join Lugar and Treasurer Richard Mourdock in the race. The potential for the anti-Lugar vote to be divided between Mourdock and Thomas would be a major boost for the longtime senator's primary chances. Thomas told Howey Politics he will make a final decision on the race by Jan. 2.

Thomas lost to now former-GOP Rep. Mark Souder in the 2010 GOP primary. He spent six-figures in the race.
