With Election Day just more than a week away, politics are going retail.
Republican Richard Mourdock, running for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Joe Donnelly, and Democrat John Gregg, running for governor against Republican Mike Pence, both stopped Friday afternoon at Larrison’s Diner in downtown Seymour.
Gregg and Mourdock pressed the flesh and bent the ears of local voters, who got a dose of campaigning with their deep fried tenderloins, grilled chicken salads, fries and cups of chili and bean soup.
And don’t forget the glass of Big Red.
Mourdock answers questions
Mourdock, who is facing questions about his recent comments about abortion, said, “at worst, we’re tied,” in reference to where he stands in the polls now with Donnelly.
“Before, we were ahead, so it did some damage; but I’m also getting a lot of encouragement and support,” Mourdock said.
