Big Government reports that the Young Guns Network, a group tied to House Republican leader Eric Cantor, has purchased another direct mail item supporting Dick Lugar over Richard Mourdock in the GOP Senate primary in Indiana. The item focuses on Lugar's support for ethanol subsidies and pro-environmental policies, while Mourdock's plan is called "extreme" and one that "means higher prices at the pump."

Mourdock, the state treasurer and a favorite among Tea Party members and grassroots conservatives, appears to have a lead over Lugar going into tomorrow's primary. A poll released late last week showed Mourdock 10 points ahead of the 80-year-old, six-term incumbent Lugar. Lugar has earned support from establishment Republicans, like the Young Guns Network and the Chamber of Commerce.
