Union Endorsed U.S. Senator Loses Big

Sen. Richard Lugar’s (R-IN) 36 years in the Senate came to an end this week as he was upset by Right to Work champion Richard Mourdock in the Republican primary.  Lugar, who got an embarrassing 39% of the vote, was endorsed by the Chicago union boss front group, “Lunch Pail Republicans.”

Speaking of the “Lunch Pail Republicans,” the Chicago Tribune profiled the group and their support of a pro-big labor primary challenger to a state legislator who voted to make Indiana a Right to Work state.  Once again, the “Lunch Pail Republican” took it on the chin losing 66% to 34% on primary night.  It’s clear that voters want legislators and elected officials to support their Right to Work.
