INDIANAPOLIS - Three Indiana women analyze next Tuesday's U.S. Senate race in a new online videos posted by Friends of Dick Lugar.
Sarah Rossier, Louise Henderson and Jody Meharg all plan to vote in next week's Republican Primary Election. All support U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar, but offer different reasons in their own words. (View DickLugar.com's video wall.)
Lugar is consensus builder, moving U.S. in right direction
"I'm an expecting parent and I want my children to be raised in a state lead by leaders like Richard Lugar," says Rossier who credits Lugar for Uni-gov, the Indianapolis reform which eliminated extra layers of government and unneeded taxpayer expenses.
Today's political and economic conditions as well as international volatility convinces Rossier that Indiana and America need Lugar.
"We need someone, we need him to continue to be the consensus builder... to get this country moving back in the right direction," Rossier says. "Indiana doesn't need a self-serving politician. We need an experienced senator." (View Rossier's video here.)
Lugar stands firm on beliefs, but isn't an extremist
Henderson says "Lugar knows how to stand firm on his beliefs but work with people in order to get things done."
She appreciates Lugar's deep understanding of issues and offers thoughtful solutions to problems facing Hoosiers and Americans.
"My concern is that Richard Mourdock doesn't," says Henderson, who believes Lugar's challenger is "pretty extreme" and unable to effectively represent Indiana. (View Henderson's video here.)
Hoosiers have common sense, value and respect Lugar
Meharg questions Mourdocks's "hair-brain schemes that he seems to think will appeal to the voters of Indiana," but believes Hoosiers have "more common sense than to just elect somebody just to be different."
She says "replacing Dick Lugar with somebody who is not his equal is lunacy," because Lugar is already one of the most respected members of the Senate.
Why replace him with someone who, if he follows through on these ideas, is going to embarrass us?" Meharg questions. (View Meharg's video here.)
