Democrats, who have been painting Mourdock as a Tea Party Republican, used the Florida senator’s visit as a way to further tie Mourdock to the far right wing of his party.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican and Tea Party favorite, visited Indiana Monday campaigning for Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock. Rubio attended Mourdock fundraisers in northern and central Indiana.

Democrats, who have been painting Mourdock as a Tea Party Republican, used the Florida senator’s visit as a way to further tie Mourdock to the far right wing of his party.

State Democratic Party chair Dan Parker says Rubio’s visit is further proof that Mourdock is out of touch with average Hoosiers.

“Marco Rubio and Richard Mourdock are two peas in one Tea Party pod,” he says.

Mourdock says he believes he’s in the mainstream of the GOP.

“When I was elected in 2006 there was no Tea Party, I was elected statewide,” he says.  ”When I was elected in 2010 statewide no one called me the Tea Party candidate. So we’re continuing to build on a very broad base that we have of Republicans and I think in the general election population as a whole.”

Mourdock says senate candidate Joe Donnelly’s support of President Obama’s policies won’t serve the Democrat well in the state.

    Most Americans would agree that there is room for STEM workers (science, technology,
    engineering and mathematics) professions, but nobody in their right mind
    would suggest in encouraging low skilled or no skilled labor. Our country is
    still recovering from a deep recession and there are still millions of
    Americans seeking a decent job.  That is
    incomprehensible and every conceivable barrier must be erected to halt this
    travesty. For decades these politicians have encouraged illegal immigration
    behind our back, otherwise illegal entry would be a FELONY.  Join the growing numbers in the TEA PARTY who
    will reject every politician, mayor, police chief or other official, who
    condones this illegal alien invasion.

    Tea Party State
    Treasurer Mourdock unseated Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, as he
    had approved of illegal alien amnesty.  Senator
    Lugar believed that illegal immigrants should have the same rights as citizens
    and law-abiding legal residents. Moudock stated that he will fight to secure
    our borders and ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent only on those legally
    allowed to live in the United States. Lugar had a long record of fighting for
    amnesty for illegal immigrants and was a primary sponsor of the DREAM Act,
    which would have fast-tracked amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants
    nationwide. Never before has a political membership in modern times, sprouted
    with such gigantic influence from the Republican Party in the millions. Liberal
    Democrats have a fight on their hands, from the Tea Party roots in our
    Democracy, founded on the U.S. constitution and representing all the people,
    not just the special interests.

     Learn who are the
    good guys are and pro-sovereignty organization such as ALIPAC. The U.S.
    Constitutional TEA PARTY is baring its fangs, against any election contender
    who is a pro-illegal immigrant politician. Also remember there is an ugly battle
    brewing over non-citizens voting in any ongoing election, federal or state. The
    TEA PARTY will promote the issuance of some form of official picture ID, so
    only eligible citizens can vote.
