Mitt Romney Wins Indiana, Flips First Obama 2008 State
As expected, Mitt Romney has won the state of Indiana, flipping the first state won by Barack Obama four years ago:
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 6 (UPI) – Indiana voters gave their state’s 11 presidential electoral votes to Republican Mitt Romney, NBC projected based on Tuesday’s early returns.
NBC said the former Massachusetts governor led President Barack Obama 60 percent to 38 percent with 5 percent of the precincts counted.
The Indianapolis Star reported there were still long lines in many central Indiana communities when the polls closed.
Romney had been expected to take Indiana.
The Senate race remains too close to call. Other states called in the Presidential race are ones you’d expect. Vermont has been called for the President, and Kentucky and West Virginia, along with Indiana and South Carolina, have been called for the President. Ohio, Virginia, and all of Florida except the Pandhandle Region have closed but are too close to call.
Updates as warranted.
