More 2012: Lugar's troubles

INDIANA: A Club for Growth poll showed incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) trailing 34%-32% in a GOP primary matchup with state Treasurer Richard Mourdock.

MASSACHUSETTS: “Elizabeth Warren's tenure as the face of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will come to a close at the end of the month,” The Hill reports. “The Treasury Department announced Tuesday that Warren will return to her work as a professor at Harvard Law School beginning Aug. 1… Meanwhile, speculation continues to swirl that Warren could mount a campaign to replace Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) as senator in 2012. Senate Democrats have courted Warren for the job, but so far she has merely said she will think about the proposition.”
