"My take: People needed to be reminded why they liked Lugar so much, why they've elected him so many times, and why he is a unique and crucial figure in the nation's capital. That message, though, has been overshadowed by the negativity -- and negativity simply isn't Lugar's strength."
Meanwhile, Grover Norquist
is set to endorse

And Romney is visiting Virginia this week but former Sen. George Allen won't be joining him
