FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - United States Senator Richard Lugar is the longest-serving senator in Indiana history. But this year, Lugar is facing a stiff primary challenge from Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock.
NewsChannel 15’s Mark Mellinger recently sat down with both gentlemen for one-on-one interviews.
Thursday at 6:00, Mark will talk to both men about why they want to represent Indiana Capitol Hill. “I’m running for United States Senate because it is time we take a more conservative perspective to Washington,” said Mourdock.
Lugar’s answer geared more toward foreign policy and national security. “I believe I can make a considerable difference in the security of the United States, as I’ve been attempting to do over in the former Soviet Union for many years,” the senator said.
Before you vote, make sure you watch our in-depth conversations with Lugar and Mourdock. They’ll air Thursday, Friday, and Monday at 6:00 p.m. on NewsChannel 15.
