Indiana Senate: Coats Won’t Endorse Lugar

According to a statement received by Guy Benson of Townhall, Senator Dan Coats (R-IN) will not endorse Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN), or any other candidate, in the Republican primary race.

WaPo’s Chris Cillizza pointed out that key statewide Republicans Rep. Mike Pence and Gov. Mitch Daniels have pledged to sit out the primary rather than endorse the incumbent.  I contacted the office of Lugar’s Hoosier State colleague, Republican Dan Coats, to see if the newly (re)-elected member plans to lend his support to the man with whom he currently serves in the US Senate.  No dice.  Via Coats’ press secretary, Matt Lahr:

"Senator Coats has taken the position of not endorsing primary candidates and is leaving that decision to the voters of Indiana."

    Please support terminating funding of public broadcast but support tax incentives to get an increase in funds to this organization. PBS would then produce products that the public wants with supply and demand principles. Produce items of interest resulting in finding from public. Appreciate considering my desires in an vote on this issue. Bill Reed
