Sam Nunn & Richard Lugar
Samuel Augustus Nunn, Jr. (born September 8, 1938) is an American lawyer and politician. Currently the co-chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), a charitable organization working to reduce the global threats from nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, Nunn served for 24 years as a United States Senator from Georgia (1972 until 1997) as a member of the Democratic Party. Richard Green Lugar (born April 4, 1932) is the senior United States Senator from Indiana and a member of the Republican Party. /5
Unsung Heroes Dep’t.: DoD names room for the work of Sens. Richard Lugar and Sam Nunn in securing loose nukes.
I wonder, how the world would look like today if we did not have Sam Nunn and Richard Lugar working together?
Sam Nunn, Des Browne & Richard Lugar laid out their recommendations for securing nuclear material in November:
William Wells Former senator Richard Lugar, longtime US senator from Indiana, is endorsing the Democrat in the contest to replace the retiring US senator from Georgia, Saxby Chamblis. This kind of brilliance by Lugar may have been a contributing factor in his loss of the long-held seat. I understand that Michelle Nunn, daughter of Sam Nunn, is a respected contestant in the upcoming election, but with the strength of Tea Party groups operating in Georgia, Lugar's endorsement could prove to be a negative factor for Nunn.
Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn is getting some cross-party love from former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.). Lugar’s political action committee, the 19th Star PAC, donated $5,000 to Nunn’s Senate campaign in early December, according to the group’s latest Federal Election Commission report. Lugar and Nunn’s father, former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), worked together closely on nuclear nonproliferation issues while both were in the Senate. This isn’t the first time one of Nunn’s former GOP colleagues has donated to his daughter — former Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) also gave $500 to her campaign and attended a fundraiser for her, The Washington Post reported last month. Nunn, who’s running as a centrist, has raised an impressive $3.3 million in the first five months of her Senate campaign. She’ll face the winner of a crowded GOP primary that has a number of candidates running for the Tea Party mantle.
End of an Era: Last Living Moderate Republican Dies After years of public service and struggles with cancer -- and occasional forays into stand-up comedy, 82-year-old former Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania died Sunday. His death represents the end of a species -- the moderate, common-sense, non-ideologue Republican -- which was at one time politically influential. Never a large group, in recent years, it suffered a precipitous decline in numbers from the successive waves of, first, conservative, then ultra-conservative, then ultra-ultra-conservative and finally Tea Party Republicans. In 2005, political scientists declared the species unsustainable, so Specter's like may never be seen again. Political scientists are now working to harvest the political DNA of Richard Lugar and Sam Nunn so that their conservative -- but not ultra-conservative -- line might be saved as the Republican Party drifts yet further and further to the right.
Richard Lugar defeated by Tea Party big money negative campaigning. Republicans have lost a voice of reason in their party. We live in a safer world because of his work with Sam Nunn and others to account for and destroy nuclear weapons of the former Soviet Union. Ronald Reagan would be ashamed of what is happening to the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower.
