Arlen Specter Endorses Lugar
It's not been a good day for Sen. Richard Lugar. A prominent Right To Life organization endorsed his Republican primary opponent's campaign. Politico broke a story about Sen. Lugar being forced to repay to the U.S. Treasury illegal travel reimbursements he had taken for his return trips to Indiana while falsely claiming to reside at a home he sold 35 years ago. To top it off, former Senator Arlen Specter, a Republican-turned-Democrat before his primary election defeat in 2010, endorsed his re-election during a call-in show on C-SPAN this morning. Could the day get any worse for Lugar?
