Long-time Indiana Senator Richard Lugar is being remembered as a giant in Indiana politics. The Republican died Sunday at the age of 87.
Lugar served two terms as mayor of Indianapolis before joining the senate in 1977. He served until 2013.
Along with Democratic Senator Sam Nunn he led the effort to help the former Soviet states dismantle their weapons of mass destruction and nuclear arsenals.
Lugars’s longtime colleague and friend former Indiana Democratic Congressman Lee Hamilton says Lugar was known for his commitment to bipartisanship.
