Those of us who can't be in Indy today are with @mourdock & the Hoosier patriots in spirit. Go Conservatives! #INsen #RetireLugar

Conservatives are rallying in Indiana today and their message is clear: they don’t need term limits to replace six-term senator Dick Lugar with challenger Richard Mourdock.

Voting = best term limit “@KristinaRibali: Beautiful day2Retire Lugar! RT @FreedomWorks #rally4Mourdock http://t.co/YgHQzNpk #retireLugar

For many, the May 8th Senate primary can’t come soon enough.

The latest Lugar ads insult the intelligence of anyone with an IQ above room temperature. #RetireLugar

— Jim Dillman (@JimDillman) May 5, 2012

Sen. Lugar knows the Pledge is to the citizens of Indiana (not to ATR). His position is he will raise taxes on Hoosiers if/when he wishes.

The latest Howey/DePauw Indiana poll shows Mourdock leading Lugar by 10 percent.

If true, this is kind of a big deal for Mourdock – 10% lead. http://t.co/yu25Q7Jt #tcot #INSEN #redin via @Race42012

Former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum tweeted his endorsement of Mourdock yesterday:

I encourage Hoosiers to help GOTV for @RichardMourdock. If I lived in Indiana he'd have my vote in Tuesday’s #INSen race.

— Rick Santorum (@RickSantorum) May 4, 2012

So who’s pulling for Lugar? Obama voter Peggy Noonan, natch.

I hope Lugar wins his primary for one big reason: the Senate needs grown-ups. This is no time to lose one. http://t.co/KzxWDVHy

— Peggy Noonan (@Peggynoonannyc) May 3, 2012

And in a practical sense, conservatives might note that the senior senator from Indiana has just had the scare of his political life.

— Peggy Noonan (@Peggynoonannyc) May 5, 2012

Don’t you guys get it? You scared him real good with this primary nonsense. Now he’ll be a shining beacon of conservatism. Promise!

Mourdock supporters aren’t buying it.

Georgetown is to Catholicism as Dick Lugar is to conservatism. #INSEN #retireLugar #prolife

@Peggynoonannyc These "statesmen" r the ones that got us into this mess w/their failed leadership. Pass the jelly, Lugar is toast! #insen

— Amy Kremer (@AmyKremer) May 4, 2012

I'm a @Peggynoonannyc fan + respect Sen Lugar, but the federal debt was less than $1 trillion when he got 2 Congress. $15T now. Clean house.

— Mike Paranzino (@mikeparanzino) May 4, 2012

So lots of Conservatives think Sen Lugar is terrible, when I was a Democrat we thought he was great…… Oh wait now I get it #retirelugar

— Marc T Grove (@mtgrove) May 5, 2012

@Peggynoonannyc The pleadings of one who promoted Mr. Obama as an acceptable choice do not help Mr. Lugar win his 7th term. #retirelugar

— Jeff Naylor (@jdnaylor) May 5, 2012

Good job, Peggy! It might be a bigger boost for Lugar if you endorsed Mourdock. So much for Lugar-mentum.

Twitchy will monitor the rally and update below with the best tweets.
