INDIANAPOLIS — Libertarian Andrew Horning could draw enough votes to sway the outcome of Indiana's hotly contested U.S. Senate race between Republican Richard Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly.

Horning might not be as recognizable as Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Rupert Boneham of "Survivor" television fame. But a Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll released last week found Horning garnering 6 percent support in the Senate race.

That would be about triple the vote share that Horning received as the Libertarian candidate for governor in 2008 and 2000. The Libertarian candidate for Indiana's Senate election two years ago topped 5 percent of the vote, so Horning could follow that trend.
