Richard Mourdock’s interview with National Review

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

National Review:

In his victory speech, Mourdock took pains to stress that Lugar “will never be my enemy.” The race, Mourdock said, “is not about animosity; it is about ideas; it is about the direction of the Republican party; it is about the direction of our country.” Surrounded by family, friends, staff, and supporters (most clad in red campaign T-shirts), Mourdock promised to beat Donnelly and to “move the Senate to a more conservative place” and “to move the country to a better place.”

Ramesh Ponnuru on Lugar’s defeat – Tea Party’s “power inside the Republican party appears to be growing.”

From Palin’s Facebook page:

I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.

Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C.

Richard Mourdock is the conservative choice for Indiana. Senator Lugar’s 36 years of service as a Senator are appreciated, but it’s time for the torch to pass to conservative leadership in Washington that promises to rein in government spending now.
