Goodbye Lugar

Indiana Republicans tossed out longtime (36 year) senator Dick Lugar. Treasurer Richard Mourdock won by a huge 61%-39% margin. Lugar is an establishment Republican (ACU 77%) who has an F rating from the NRA. He is a foreign policy internationalist who loves the United Nations and the awful Law of the Sea Treaty.

Could another Republican incumbent lose just to the north in Michigan 6?

PS: North Carolina passed a marriage amendment 61%-39%.

Yeah, Lugar is out. But, is this a new opening for the war party? Will the new guy support war with Syria, Iran and even Russia?
