Mourdock Opens Ten-Point Lead

Howey Politics Indiana reports that Richard Mourdock has opened a ten-point lead over Senator Dick Lugar:

A Howey/DePauw Indiana Battle-ground Poll conducted Monday and Tuesday of this week shows that Lugar is trailing Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock 48-38% in the Republican Senate primary.
