Both governor candidates were unopposed. Anyone have any thoughts on the Pence-Gregg race? Pence would seem to have a head-start on name recognition.
George Van Til has 2,210-vote lead over his challenger, Rick Garcia. Kind of close, 53%-47%.
For fall, the key in the gubernatorial race will be whether organized labor can organize voters in opposition to the right-to-work vote in the Legislature this year.
Well, that plus presidential coattails.
With just 4 precincts left to count in Lake County, Repay is holding on to a 74-vote lead over Novak.
It will be interesting to see how many resources the national Democrats put into Indiana with their hopes now to steal a Senate seat. We've got a long way to go until November.
Anyone want to guess what % of votes in Indiana this fall are straight ticket?
Rupert Boneham (Survivor guy, Libertarian candidate for governor) wasn't on the ballot in this primary. It's purely an R&D (not research & development) election.
dave wenger, thanks for jumping on the chat. It was good to see some new blood on the Republican side in the 1st district.
Two-thirds of ballots cast in Porter County were GOP. Not many races with opposition on Democratic ballot.
Try that again: CONTESTED races.
Unofficial totals have Repay defeating Novak by 74 votes in commissioner race and Brown over Fajman by 457 votes in the recorder race - the two closest races of the night in Lake County.
Getting ready for live webcast. Stay tuned.
Still sifting through Lake election results.
Just checked Politico. Looks like Crawford County has the dubious distinction of being the last in the state to report Senate results.
Ron Paul got 17% of votes in Lake County.
Rich Novak dropped a sledgehammer on his foot -- kids, don't try this at home -- in the last weeks of the election. Could that have made a difference in his 74-vote loss in the north county commissioner's race?
Not looking forward to making sure we get the right Mike Brown mugshot for campaign stories this fall.
Interesting how many contested races there were this year for precinct committeeman and state convention delegate. Was this base fired up or what?

Veep office tweet on Lugar: "The Senate lost a brilliant strategic mind, a man with absolute integrity. He will be missed."
Wondering who convinced Mike Brown to run? Bill Dolan's story will have the story.
Just finished the live webcast. Comments? Reactions?
Oh, and Bulls and White Sox won, too.
