As Republican Richard Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly do battle in the race for the U.S. Senate, the two sides also find themselves in a rapid response fight with Super PACS.
With polls showing the race a virtual tie, neither side can afford give one inch in the rapid response tug-of-war.
“The same group of Wall Street billionaires who spent over $2 million against Senator Lugar are yet again trying to buy an election—thank goodness Hoosier voters have the final say,” said Elizabeth Shappell, communications director in response to the Club for Growth ad.
With respect to Majority PAC, “The Indiana way is to do your duty and to stand by your neighbor. In this case, I was bound by my oath and by principle to stand up for retired teachers and police officers, and for Hoosier taxpayers,” said Mourdock. “The Obama administration was prepared to take these folks’ life savings,” said Mourdock, “and I wasn’t going to stand by and let that happen, without a fight.”
The two are scheduled to meet for their first debate on October 15. They will be joined by Libertarian candidate Andy Horning.
