Senatorial dinner

Allen County Republicans will have a chance to hear from both senatorial candidates just before Election Day.

Sen. Richard Lugar and state Treasurer Richard Mourdock will both speak at the county’s Lincoln Day Dinner, scheduled for April 30, according to Steve Shine, local party chairman.

The event is thought to be the first announced joint appearance for the two candidates who are fighting for the party’s nomination.

The event’s location and format have yet to be set, but it will not be a debate, Shine said. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, will serve as emcee for the dinner.
