Locked into a fierce GOP primary fight that has Democrats dreaming of an unexpected chance to pick up a U.S. Senate seat, Sen. Richard G. Lugar of Indiana is struggling to deflect an onslaught of attacks by tea-party sympathizers trying to oust him in favor of state Treasurer Richard Mourdock.
"I do think it's going to be very close, and that in and of itself is a story because if Indiana had a Mount Rushmore, Dick Lugar's face would be on it," Mr. Krull said.
"If Lugar does hold on, he can be very thankful he wasn't running in 2010, because he fits the profile of a lot of those senators who got knocked off," said John Krull, a journalism professor at Franklin College.
