Pro-Lugar Super PAC Slams Chocola
Updated at 1:46 p.m.
Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., is running against state Treasurer Richard Mourdock in the GOP primary. But a new TV ad from a pro-Lugar super PAC targets Club For Growth President Chris Chocola as much as it slams Lugar's actual opponent.
"Ex-Hoosier Congressman Chris Chocola's Club For Growth and Mourdock attack our senator, Dick Lugar, saying his conservatism isn't pure," says the narrator of the spot launched by Hoosiers for Economic Growth And Jobs.
"In Congress, Chocola supported the largest Medicare expansion ever, minimum wage increases, dozens of earmarks," the narrator continues.
A source tracking the buy says that the group is spending about $100,000 to air the ad in the Indianapolis area.
