(INDIANAPOLIS) - Members of the Indiana Election Commission have blocked the challenge to Senator Richard Lugar's residency.
Tea party backers of Lugar's primary opponent Richard Mourdock had questioned Lugar's right to run again, because he sold his Indianapolis home in 1977.
Two of the four election commission members say they're troubled that Lugar doesn't have a current Indiana address -- but all four agree that he's legally a resident.
Lugar's attorney Wayne Turner says the Indiana constitution "freezes" your residence if you're elected to congress.
