Dick Lugar’s Voting Record

I'm no fan of Redstate but it did an excellent job summarizing the voting record of Sen. Richard Lugar who is facing a primary challenger in the Indiana primary on 5/8.

Dick Lugar voted:
To support a host of anti-gun legislation including a concealed weapons ban
To support the Bridge to Nowhere To oppose school choice for victims of Hurricane Katrina
To oppose $13 billion in new mandatory spending cuts
To support raiding the social security trust fund to fund general budget appropriations
To oppose a one year earmark moratorium
To support adding $52 billion in new spending to Barack Obama’s stimulus bill
To support TARP To support giving the IMF more money
To support the tax credit and tariff on ethanol
To support increased foreign aid spending To support an expansion of highway spending that would bankrupt the Highway Trust Fund
To support increasing the loan limit to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
Read the rest here
Red State

I doubt that Lugar's chief primary challenger, Richard Mourdock (endorsed by Sarah Palin), will be much different.  The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has endorsed Patrick Flynn, here.
