Mul­tiple re­li­able GOP sources say Treas. Richard Mour­dock (R) is pre­par­ing to chal­lenge Sen. Dick Lugar (R) in the GOP primary. Mour­dock: “I’ve had a lot of Re­pub­lic­ans telling me that I ought to look at a lot of things. It’s very flat­ter­ing.”

Mour­dock “said that he if told his wife” he was kick­ing off an­oth­er cam­paign, “the pa­pers would be served by to­mor­row.” and he wants “to take some time, clear his desk off” and then see “what doors open.”

There had been spec­u­la­tion that state Sen. Mike Delph (R) might chal­lenge Lugar, as well as ‘10 can­did­ate Don Bates Jr. (R). Bates said that many GOP­ers were angered by votes Lugar cast con­firm­ing Justices Kagan and So­to­may­or. Bates: “People in the party have be­come a lot more con­ser­vat­ive than Sen. Lugar. They don’t want com­prom­ise with the pres­id­ent” (“Howey Polit­ics,” 11/10).
