May 4, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government (ALG) today held an exclusive blogger briefing with U.S. Senate candidate Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock on his surprising, insurgent campaign against Sen. Richard Lugar, who has served for more than 35 years in the Senate.

In the interview, Mourdock had a lot to say about the Tea Party, but topics also included international affairs, the Law of the Sea Treaty, environmental regulations, what he called the man-made climate change “myth,” the emerging threat of the national debt, and growing the economy.
Mourdock drew his race against Lugar in very stark terms as anti-establishment.
“This is an intraparty rebellion against a very senior senator who’s been there too long and who’s grown out of touch with the people he’s supposed to represent,” said Mourdock on the exclusive call.
The Indiana treasurer thanked the Tea Party for their help and said they’re not going anywhere: “Our campaign has over 3,000 volunteers, and most of them came from the Tea Party organizations. So people who think the Tea Party has died are about to find that the reports of its death are greatly exaggerated.”
Mourdock predicted victory on Tuesday: “We’re going to win this race because of the help of all those Tea Party folks.”
