Republican Mike Pence Wins Indiana Governorship

The GOP might have lost a U.S. Senate seat in Indiana today, but Republican’s will hold the governor’s seat.

The AP:

Republican Mike Pence will be Indiana’s next governor after a victory that helps extend his party’s control of the Statehouse.

Pence defeated Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rupert Boneham Tuesday after a campaign in which he started as the better-known candidate and had a strong fundraising advantage.

Pence has been in Congress for the past 12 years, gaining national prominence as a social conservative. But he focused his campaign on economic issues and brushed off attacks that he’ll push contentious social issues.
