Foes allege Sen. Lugar doesn't really live in Ind.
US Sen. Lugar battling attacks from conservatives, Dems who allege he's not a Hoosier anymore
By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar once seemed unbeatable in Indiana. But lately, he's been scrambling to reintroduce himself to Hoosiers amid a barrage of attacks that he has lost touch.

His tea party challenger repeated the charge Wednesday in front of the Indianapolis home the Republican incumbent sold decades ago.

Lugar has spent 35 years in Washington, but he's been campaigning as though he was a rookie politico. He's trying to introduce himself to the masses and define his image before his Democratic and tea party opponents do.

While nearly all members of Congress have living arrangements in the Washington, D.C., area, most own homes or rent apartments in the states they represent. Lugar owns a home in Virginia and typically stays in hotels when he returns to Indiana.
