Their chosen one is pissed at Lugar voting for confirmation of an unbiased justice, that is apolitical. He wanted a Bork, because the judicial branch is meant to circumvent the laws the majority of the people have chosen to pass. That and steal elections, and deny constitutional redress for the population from the tortfeasors that paid for the appointment of the justice.

One of the issues with Lugar, for those who actually live in Indiana and are concerned about Indiana, is that he no longer owns a home in the state, having listed his address in suburban Virginia, and therefore he was for a while considered to be ineligible to vote in Indiana, until he somehow was able to use his family's farm which is located here as a home address for purposes of voter registration. Also, even though we have a below-average level of household income compared to the national average, many of the people here either love rich people and automatically reject anyone who is low-income, or just don't understand that Mourdock is backed by out-of-state rich people and is running to represent rich people, not the average person.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
