Cantor on Young Guns Network 4 Lugar: "1st of all I have not gotten involved in that race, this is an outside group I have no control over"—

Say what, Rep. Cantor?
The Young Guns Network is a group started by two former Cantor aides that shares its name with a book authored by Cantor. The organization has spent over $100,000 on Sen. Dick Lugar’s reelection effort in Indiana.
That’s 80-year-old “young gun” Dick Lugar, by the way.
Conservatives have criticized the YG Network for funding a pro-Lugar mailer that encouraged non-Republicans to vote against Richard Mourdock in today’s GOP primary contest. Clearly Cantor is eager to distance himself from that, but conservatives aren’t buying the “Dick who?” routine.
