leave a comment »

Sen. John McCain has won in a strong showing in Kentucky, earning 62 percent of the vote in early results. Sen. Barack Obama has the same margin in New Hampshire, but that state is still in question. Both states closed their polls about 20 minutes ago.

Portions of Indiana have closed their polls, but no results are in.

Kentucky has eight electoral votes, Indiana has 11, and New Hampshire has four.

In the Kentucky Senate race, early returns have incumbent Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell with a slight lead over his Democratic opponent Bruce Lunsford, 54 percent to 46 percent, at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
