Apr 11, 2012, 08:00 ET from FreedomWorks for America

INDIANAPOLIS, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following release is being issued by FreedomWorks for America:

WHAT: The Indiana Debate Commission will host its only primary debate between Richard Mourdock and incumbent Senator Richard Lugar to discuss a variety of issues, including the debt, health care, jobs, and questions submitted by Hoosier voters.

FreedomWorks for America and Hoosiers for a Conservative Senate activists plan to gather outside the debate venue to sign wave and stand in solidarity in support of Richard Mourdock as the true conservative choice for Indiana Senate.

WHEN: The debate will begin on Wednesday, April 11th at 7 p.m. ET. FreedomWorks activists will gather at 6 p.m. ET outside the venue.

WHERE: 1630 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202. The debate is closed to the public, but will be streamed live at    

WHY: FreedomWorks for America endorsed Richard Mourdock to replace big-spending Republican Dick Lugar last fall. As Indiana State Treasurer, Mourdock returned an average of 10% of his budget back to the Treasury each year. He also led the legal fight to challenge the Obama Administration's automobile bailout and takeover of Chrysler.

FreedomWorks for America believes that Richard Mourdock would be a consistent advocate for reduced tax rates and a leaner federal government to stimulate economic growth. Since the endorsement, Hoosiers have distributed 100,000 palm cards and door hangers, 11,000 yard signs, and 11,000 bumper stickers on his behalf.

Unlike traditional Super PACs which exist to produce expensive advertising buys, FreedomWorks for America was created to develop tools to empower local activists to create a winning ground game that will transform grassroots conservatism into lasting political change this November.
