Indiana Tea Party activists meet to agree on Lugar Opponent

INDIANAPOLIS — Tea party activists from across Indiana will meet this month to try to agree on a candidate who they hope can defeat Sen. Richard Lugar in next year's Republican primary.

Monica Boyer of the northern Indiana group Kosciusko County Silent No More tells The Indianapolis Star that representatives of more than 50 tea party groups will meet Jan. 22 in the city Tipton. Boyer is among the leaders of the anti-Lugar group Hoosiers for Conservative Senate.
