Former United States Senator Richard Lugar says he does see some comparisons between the current U.S. Senate race in Alabama and his own race back in 2012 where he lost to Richard Mourdock.
Lugar was speaking at the annual Lugar symposium at the University of Indianapolis.
He told Indy Politics there are some parallels regarding those Republicans who voted for Roy Moore’s opponent Luther Strange in the primary and whether they will support him in this week’s election.
