While the presidential race has been over for some time on a national level, Obama has taken a late lead in Indiana with less than 10% to report.
By carrying Indiana, Obama would put an emphatic stamp on a convincing victory over John McCain. What’s more, it would also show that many Hoosiers split their tickets, considering Republican Mitch Daniels (who received the Indiana Chamber’s first-ever gubernatorial endorsement) was re-elected with nearly 60% of the vote.
"It’s amazing to see a Republican gubernatorial candidate and Democratic president winning in Indiana," Michael Davis said. "One thing that they both have in common is the element of change."
Seems that’s the theme that registered with seasoned Hoosier voters and newly registered voters alike.
