kudos for Hostettler AND Pence to endorse McCain?

HoosierPundit resurrects an old and laudatory article about John Hostettler. Good stuff!

I hope he's elected Senator in November.

But this continues to beg the question: Can someone tell me why Mike Pence endorsed Dan Coats over Hostettler? And why would he endorse the baggage-laden, fiscally-moderate Mike Sodrel in the 9th District?

Will Pence follow that up by endorsing John McCain over J.D. Hayworth in Arizona (as Mitt Romney did this week)?

Eric, do you think Hostetler will win the primary? I haven't seen head-to-head polling. It would be very interesting to see an articulate anti-war conservative (Hostetler is the real deal) against a pro-war "moderate" Democrat like Ellsworth, who beat him in their House match-up. Hostetler suffered from being tied to the GOP even though he voted against the war, the Medicare drug plan, "No Child Left Behind" and other GOP stupidity.

No idea; seems like he has a good change. I'm not sure if the GOP primary voters want someone like that-- in terms of approach or positions. (Heck, we still see some people willing to vote for Sodrel.) I haven't studied in much detail, but from what I've seen, Hostettler seems like the best Senate candidate.
