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.
