CARMEL, Ind. — A Republican senator from Florida encouraged Hoosier support of Republican Senate nominee Richard Mourdock by joining the candidate for a public outing to a Carmel deli.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio campaigned Monday with Mourdock, who defeated longtime Sen. Richard Lugar in the May GOP primary.

“We face some real critical issues as a country, and if we don’t solve these issues, they’re not going to solve themselves. They’re only going to get worse and harder to fix,” Rubio said Monday. “That’s why I’m excited and hopeful to bring someone up there like Richard Mourdock.”
