Dick Lugar Through the Years—PICTURES

May 8, 2012

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., who is the longest-serving Republican in the Senate along with Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is in the political fight of his career against Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Lugar's long Senate career—he was first elected in 1976—is punctuated with highlights that include the Nunn-Lugar legislation on nuclear nonproliferation.

Lugar in 2010: Lugar strongly supported the New START treaty as “a modest treaty that sets the stage for an ongoing relationship with the Russians.” With Lugar’s help, the treaty got more than the required 67 votes in the December 2010 lame-duck session of the Senate.(Chet Susslin)
