Former Sen. Richard Lugar, a Republican, has given the maximum amount of money allowed under federal campaign finance laws to a candidate who hopes to help Democrats retain the Senate in the 2014 election.He was probably working for Harry Reid earlier than this.
Michelle Nunn used the $5,000 donation to appeal to conservative Georgia voters. "I am immensely honored and grateful for Senator Lugar's generous support in this race," she said.

We need more leaders like Senator Lugar -- not less, and I will strive to follow this legacy in the U.S. Senate."
