The 60 Plus Association is the latest national conservative group to throw its support behind Richard Mourdock for senate.
The Arlington, Va.-based Super PAC has been taking a bus tour through Southern, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states. In addition to a stop today at the Indiana Statehouse, the tour will stop at Richmond, Carmel, West Lafayette, Lakeville and Valparaiso. Since beginning to operate in Indiana this April, the foundation has about 130,000 supporters in the state and field staff in Fort Wayne, South Bend and Indianapolis, organizers say.
The organization honored Mourdock and U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Indiana, today for their fiscal conservatism.
About 40 seniors from Central Indiana attended the event today at the Statehouse. The organization’s founder, James L. Martin, spoke. One of the organization’s goals, he said, is to win a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.
Martin discussed the need to balance the federal budget, cut spending and repeal the Affordable Care Act. Both Mourdock and Rokita support those efforts.
Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly remain statistically tied in several polls, focusing national attention — and millions in campaign finance dollars — in Indiana.
