Early Returns Produce Interesting Results

Election night returns are rolling in and here's our early take:

  • Senate President Pro Tem is headed for defeat. While Garton is making it a race in his home county of Bartholomew, Walker has a commanding lead in Shelby County which Garton is unable to overcome.
  • Sen. Allen Paul had a close one, but has made it passed Bruce Wissel with about 54% of the vote.
  • Former Senator Dick Thompson is struggling to regain his old Senate seat. He now has a slight lead over James Detamore in this multi-candidate race.
  • Rep. Rich McClain has a lead over his opponent, Rick Eller.
  • Rep. Mary Kay Budak is losing by a substantial margin to challenger Tom Dermody.
  • Rep. Phyllis Pond has a solid lead over Denny Worman.
  • Rep. Don Lehe is struggling with a small lead over Don Anderson.
  • Rep. Mike Murphy is capturing 63% in his 3-way race.
  • Rep. Woody Burton has a commanding lead over Ron West.
  • Rep. Suzanne Crouch is handily beating Jon Fulton.
  • Rep. Julia Carson has coasted to renomination with close to 75% of the vote. Kiser is collecting just under 15% of the vote.
  • Republican Eric Dickerson has smashed his Republican-slated opponent, Ron Franklin. Dickerson has captured more than 50% of the vote in this 4-way race.
  • Democratic judicial candidate William Fatout is the bottom man out in this 12-way race for 9 judicial spots. Jose Salinas, riding the wave of Marion Co.'s growing Hispanic population is the beneficiary. Karen Celestino-Horseman comes up short, along with LilaBerdia Batties. No slated candidates losing in this race.

Stay tuned for more results.

Fatout isn't slated. The top nine vote getters are the slate. Treacy flexed his considerable muscles

Thanks--it's corrected.

Treacy can flex all he wants. I have lost my respect for the process and his (no longer my) party.
